With two Grammy Award-winning albums, two Entertainer of the Year honors from the International Bluegrass Music Association, and four IBMA Vocal Group of the Year wins, the Nashville Bluegrass Band is no stranger to acclaim from critics and fans alike. The band’s personnel are sought-after, first-call studio musicians, known for a superior level of creativity and a commitment to traditional music styles. Collectively and singularly, the members of NBB have virtually defined the modern bluegrass sound.
