It seems that a lot of folks haven’t gotten the word that there is no live stream of the International Bluegrass Music Awards Show from Raleigh tonight. The IBMA let us know a few weeks ago that they had lost a major sponsor that made that cybercast possible, and they are unable to provide it this year.
They will offer some portions of the show via Facebook live this evening, and we will report the winners here as they are announced.
If you refresh this page periodically, you can see the winner’s names as they accept their trophies.
Here are the results:
Instrumental Recorded Performance Of The Year – Fireball – Special Consensus featuring Rob Ickes, Trey Hensley, and Alison Brown (artist), Long I Ride (album), Compass Records
