2017 IBMA Awards - Guitar Player of the Year
What an amazing night in Raleigh at the IBMA Awards! There were so many special moments, but I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who has believed in me and supported my on this musical journey. It was truly one of the biggest honors I could ever imagine to receive the International Bluegrass Music Association's Guitar Player of the Year Award.
I'll never forget getting walk the red carpet and perform at the IBMA awards with two of my biggest heroes, Alice Gerrard and Laurie Lewis! Seeing Laurie induct Hazel & Alice into the IBMA hall of fame meant so much to me because they are such a big part of why I started singing and writing songs. Thanks to the IBMA for recognizing these incredible women, and thanks Laurie and Alice for inspiring so many with your music!
