Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Billy Strings won Best Bluegrass Album at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards for his critically acclaimed record, HOME, furthering his reputation as “one of string music’s most dynamic young stars” (Rolling Stone).
Associated Press proclaims, “it is his creative musical storytelling, paired with solid vocals on Home that should seal the deal, pleasing fans of the genre and creating some new ones the perfect blend of pure talent and pluck.”
Strings and the album topped Billboard’s 2020 year-end chart in both bluegrass categories: Top Bluegrass Artists and Top Bluegrass Albums Titles.
Michigan-born and now Nashville-based, Strings arrived on the music scene as one of the most compelling new artists with the release of his 2017 debut LP, Turmoil & Tinfoil. He has since been awarded Guitar Player of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the 2019 International Bluegrass Music Awards, selected as one of Rolling Stone’s 2017 “New Country Artists to Know” and performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and PBS’ “Bluegrass Underground.” An electric live performer, he keeps the improvisational tradition of bluegrass alive while incorporating elements of several diverse genres, “fusing bluegrass to psych rock, country and jam music, without fussing over what bluegrass should be,” writes World Cafe.
