Volume Five was also presented with the prestigious Song of the Year Award for "I Am A Drifter" written by Donna Ulisee and Marc Rossi. The crowd was delighted with Ulisee's excitement while accepting the award with Glen Harrell and the band. This chart-topping tune appears on Volume Five's album Drifter on Mountain Fever Records that debuted on Billboard's Top 10 Bluegrass Album Chart last year. (Photo courtesy Mountain Fever Records).

"I would like to thank everyone for all the kind words to me and the V5 members. I also want to thank all the guys that have been with the band over the years and have contributed to our sound and success. Thanks so much to Harry Formby Clark, Adam Duke, Jeff Partin, Mark Hodges, Casey Cullwell, Jesse Daniel, Shane Blackwell, and Aaron Ramsey. Also many thanks to Moonstruck Management. We just couldn't do this without the entire team," said Harrell.
