Many mark their 30th anniversary
with the lustre of pearls as a gift, David Davis and the Warrior River Boys
begin its 2014 milestone with a nomination for its leader.

Bluegrass and Old Time Folk Music Festival in LeMars, Iowa on August 25.
Davis of Cullman, Ala. is included among the
nominees to the National Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame beside Hee Haw star Lulu Roman and John

“David is a deserving
bluegrasser, and that’s one of our priority genres,” said Bob Everhart of the
National Traditional Country Music Association.
Since taking the reins in
October 1984, Davis and his band traveled millions of miles while garnering a
faithful following of folks who care about their music through scores of
appearances on stage, television and radio.
Promoters have welcomed their
traditional sounds, comedy, and flawless musicianship to entertain their
audiences at the largest outdoor festivals and premier indoor venues in
forty-six states, the Bahamas and all Canadian Provinces.
“It is definitely a special
honor for which to be nominated,” he said. “The
fact that so many different types of artists and different segments of American
music genres are represented here make it even more significant.”

“Two Dimes and a Nickel” is on Rebel, his catalog includes releases
on Rounder, Wango and Time Life.
