September 30, 2011, Nashville: The Gibson Brothers swept up two of the biggest awards at last night’s 22nd annual International Bluegrass Awards at the Ryman Auditorium, taking home “Album of the Year,” and “Vocal Group of the Year.” The Compass Records duo, Eric and Leigh Gibson, received seven nominations for Help My Brother released in February to chart topping and critical success, establishing them as one of bluegrass’ hottest acts.
 
“If you keep showing up good things can happen. We’re lifers, we don’t have a plan B and this is what we do and we feel very fortunate to be doing this for quite awhile now. This is validation for staying in it and not giving out,” says Eric Gibson of the wins.

Dale Ann Bradley collected her fourth “Female Vocalist of the Year” award.   Bradley just released Somewhere South of Crazy, praised by The Sunday edition of The New York Times with, “One of the most delicate female vocalists in bluegrass…the highlight is ‘Come Home Good Boy’, and affecting, quietly enraged song about sending a child off to war.” The song is now a music video and will be featured on both CMT.com and GAC.com.
 
Co-founded in 1994 by musicians Alison Brown and Garry West, Compass is a new breed of roots-music label: eclectic, sophisticated, and artist-friendly. Called “one of the greatest independent labels of the last decade” by Billboard Magazine, Compass Records has provided a thriving haven of creativity for artists and a reliable beacon of quality for music fans.
