Let me just say that I was not at all disappointed and came away from the night having found another group to add to the very short list of bluegrass bands that I like (gee, does just one band constitute a list??) Well ... truth be told, I may have come away with more than one group to add but I don't want my cousin Amy thinking she's got me sold on bluegrass just yet!
Anyway, I wanted to share with you a video from the group that I quite liked - Balsam Range - and the song that they performed at the IBMA Awards which I really wish there was a video of as it was most excellent (don't tell Amy but it gave me goosebumps listening to it). The song is called "Trains I Missed" and unbeknownst to me when they sang it, it had been nominated for "Song of the Year" - had I been a fan or brought my glasses so I could read the program I would have known that but nope, I was clueless. Apparently I'm not the only one who really likes the song though, as it won its nomination which just goes to prove two things 1) I have an ear for good music and 2) so do the rest of the professional members of the IBMA who vote for the winners!
I hope you like it also and now if you'll excuse me, I need to go see if I can buy the download from iTunes and when you do the same after listening to the music, just remember it's "Trains I Missed" and not the title that the person who made the video used.
