The Earls of Leicester Receive 2015 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album
The Earls of Leicester took home the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album.
The band's self-titled release serves as their tribute to bluegrass artists Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. The group is made up of bluegrass stars in their own right, including Jerry Douglas, Tim O’Brien, Shawn Camp, Johnny Warren, Charlie Cushman and Barry Bales.
"We're very humbled by this," Douglas said during his acceptance speech. "These guys worked with me -- I've wanted to do an album like this since the first time I picked up a musical instrument ... This is what it’s all about -- Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs."
Other nominees in the category include Naom Pikelny, for 'Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe;' Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, for ‘Cold Spell;' Bryan Sutton, for ‘Into My Own;' and Rhonda Vincent, for Only Me.’
The Earls of Leicester head out on their 2015 tour on Feb. 26., beginning in Rocky Mount, Va.
