Nashville, TN (October

they kicked off a stirring tribute to the late Earl Scruggs with actor
Steve Martin, the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys are pleased to announce the release of their new album, The Farthest HorizonThe album debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Album Chart last week and is now available at iTunes, Amazon, and more outlets.
The Sleepy Man Banjo Boys, a bluegrass
trio of brothers, became an overnight sensation in 2011 after practice
recordings for their grandparents went viral on YouTube.  These videos
have now collectively topped over 12 million YouTube views.
 Tommy (Guitar), age 15, Robbie (Fiddle), age 13 and Jonny (Banjo) age
10, were encouraged by their parents to learn an instrument and first
discovered their love for Bluegrass music by watching Earl Scruggs pick
his five string on YouTube. Since then, the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys have
developed a style and sound that is uniquely their own and as a result
of their viral, virtually overnight success, their talent has been
showcased on national television shows, including CBS’s The Late Night
with David Letterman Show, NBC’s The Today Show and Fox’s Huckabee.
The Farthest Horizon is poised to follow the success of their debut album America’s Music,
with 11 fresh tracks, seven of which were penned by the boys
themselves. Two of the songs on the new album also feature the beautiful
and authentic voice of 13-year-old Ashley Lily, granddaughter of the
late bluegrass legend Everett Lily.
In support of the album, the Sleepy Man
Banjo Boys will be traveling coast to coast visiting with the media,
radio broadcasters and fans. Their next performance will be on the grand
stage of Carnegie Hall for a special performance for Kate Winslet’s
Golden Hat Foundation benefiting autism research.
Radio stations worldwide have welcomed The Farthest Horizon sending it to #4 this month on AirplayDirect’s Global Radio Indicator Top 50 APD Bluegrass/Folk Albums Chart.
