Marty Raybon was honored with his first award from the International Bluegrass Music Association at the 24th IMBA Awards Show last Thursday [Sept. 26] in Raleigh, N.C.

The former lead singer of Shenandoah earned the Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year award for the song ‘Beulah Land,’ from his 2012 album ‘Southern Roots & Branches.’

“It is a such an honor to win the IBMA Award for Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year,” Raybon says in a press release. “This the first of many I hope, and I am overwhelmed with joy. I am truly proud of the steadfast job from a great record label, Rural Rhythm Records, [and] the lyric from a wonderful writer, Squire Parsons. I am thankful and humbled at the favor the Lord has shown me.”

Raybon is celebrating his 40th year in the entertainment industry with his recently-released album, ‘The Back Forty.’ The current single from the album, ‘That Janie Baker,’ is at No. 18 on the Bluegrass Unlimited Chart.

Raybon also appears on the October 2013 cover of Bluegrass Unlimited.
