The Gracsals now have three more trophies to add to their hefty collection. The six-piece group scored big at the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America (SPBGMA) Bluegrass Music Awards, held last night (February 6).

"It's an amazing feeling," vocalist Jamie Johnson says of their win. "We've worked really hard to carry the tradition of bluegrass to new audiences, and we are honored to be acknowledged."

The Grascals took home the trophy for Instrumental Group of the Year, while their mandolin aficianado Danny Roberts won for Mandolin Performer of the Year and the only female in the group, Kristin Scott Benson won Banjo Performer of the Year.

Although, the highlight of the evening had nothing to do with their own accolades. Jamie presented the Hall of Greats Award to the founding member of The Boys From Indiana, Aubrey Holt. "We're both from Milan, Indiana, and he's been an inspiration to me for many years," Jamie says of the legendary bluegrass singer and songwriter. "Aubrey has written some of the greatest songs in bluegrass history; he's had songs cut by Alison Krauss, Blue Highway, and many others, including The Grascals. I'm proud to call him my mentor, but most of all, my friend."

The Grascals released a duets album, 'The Grascals + Friends: Country Classics With a Bluegrass Spin' last month, which included guest vocals by Dolly Parton, Charlie Daniels, Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley. The album was released exclusively through Cracker Barrel, with proceeds benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The group will spend much of the first part of 2011 on the road, including dates later this month in North Carolina, Massachusetts and Florida. See their complete schedule here.
