Graham Sharp, banjo player with Steep Canyon Rangers, asked us to share these words of gratitude on behalf of the band regarding their selection, along with Steve Martin, as the 2011 IBMA Entertainer of the Year.
Thank you to the voters and everyone involved in the IBMA, congratulations to all the winners and nominees, especially Dailey & Vincent on their great run of three years. We will do everything in our power to represent this great music the best we can.
Thanks to Steve Martin for believing in us and, most of all, thanks to all the bluegrass lovers out there.
See you down the road, Graham Sharp and all the Rangers”
