Entertainer of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year Honors

 

Band’s Josh Swift Nominated For
Instrumental Performer of the Year – Dobro

Nashville, TN (July 26, 2017) – Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver are nominated in three categories for the 28th Annual IBMA Awards:  Entertainer of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year and Josh Swift for Instrumental Performer of the YearDobro
The organization announced the nominees today via their Facebook Live
Stream and in conjunction with Sirius XM.  Winners will be announced
during a gala awards presentation on September 28 at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh, NC.  Tickets are available now 
online. 
 
“I’ve
been doin’ this a long time,” notes Doyle.  “Every nomination is an
honor, but for us to be in the running with these young guns is really
special because it means we’re still connecting with our fans and that’s
what we live for.”  Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver has released nearly
40 albums – and previously won seven IBMA Vocal Group of the Year honors.  The band features
Doyle’s signature Lead and Baritone vocals, Mandolin and Mandola, and includes: Josh Swift (Resophonic Guitar, Acoustic Lead Guitar and Percussion); Joe Dean (Banjo and Guitar); Dustin Pyrtle (Lead and Tenor vocals, Guitar); Eli Johnston (Lead and Baritone vocals, Bass) and Stephen Burwell (Fiddles). 
 
This group is going strong: they just released a new single, “Life To My Days.”  The
track is a bit more modern than usual for DLQ, but it’s already a fan
favorite at shows.  The release is from their upcoming (August 25)
album, LIFE IS A STORY (Mountain Home Music Company), which can be pre-ordered 
HERE.
 
An influential force in today’s Bluegrass world, DLQ’S last two releases (IN SESSION, BURDEN BEARER) received back-to-back Grammy nominations in 2016 and 2017, respectively.  Doyle was inducted into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame in 2012 and received the National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship award in 2006 for his contributions to cultural heritage as a musical trailblazer.
