The Grascals Earn Grammy Nomination For Best Bluegrass Album

NASHVILLE, TN. (Rounder Records) -— The Grascals earned a Grammy® nomination today for Best Bluegrass Album for Long List of Heartaches, their sophomore release on Rounder Records. Produced by The Grascals, Long List of Heartaches features stellar guest performances by George Jones, Dierks Bentley, Steve Wariner, The Jordanaires, Lloyd Green and Hargus 'Pig' Robbins. This is The Grascals' second Grammy nomination; their self-titled debut was also nominated for Best Bluegrass Album last year.

'This means the world to us,' said Grascals vocalist/guitarist Jamie Johnson. 'We really feel like we defined the Grascals' sound with this new album. And it's even sweeter to share this nomination with the incredible guests who honored us by being part of the project.'

Long List of Heartaches debuted at No 2 on Billboard's Top Bluegrass Albums chart and is at No 9 this week. Critics have praised the collection:

'The hype machine is at full throttle, but the Grascals justify every scrap of it . . .The guests are special, but the Grascals, even without the help, are a must-listen for fans who like their bluegrass delivered with some country grit.' -The Boston Globe

'The Grascals' acclaimed 2005 debut demonstrated their strength was modern, streamlined bluegrass with ample nods to tradition. Brimming with instrumental virtuosity, this near-perfect effort reiterates those strengths.'

'The Grascals' debut album was nominated for a Grammy. This one's strong enough to win one.' -Robert K. Oermann

The Grascals were recently named Entertainers of the Year at the 17th Annual International Bluegrass Music Awards, just one year after winning Emerging Artist of the Year.

The Grascals will return to the Grand Ole Opry for a guest performance on the Tuesday Night Opry at the Ryman on December 19.
