"In case you didn't realize it, bluegrass rules tonight!" shouted ebullient host Ricky Scaggs at the beginning of the taping of the sold-out All*Star Bluegrass Celebration at the famed Ryman Auditorium. Now that there’s a full fledged revival going on for this music that's been called “old as dirt”, the accolades, attention,artists and audiences are lining up to show their appreciation.

The genius filmmaking Coen Brothers gleefully predicted that bluegrass would be the next big thing after they made it the basis for the soundtrack for their smash movie "O Brother, Where Art Thou", but even they have been surprised at just how true that prediction turned out to be. The soundtrack is now approaching quadruple platinum in sales, the single "Man of Constant Sorrow" from the CD was named the CMA Song of the Year, a major tour of the artists who performed the music has been launched, and the Grammy nods, of which there are several, have recently been announced. / Issue 22 - September 2018
