Bluegrass pickers on ACM awards show tonight

We just received the news that Sara Evans has asked Jim Van Cleve and Clay Jones to perform with her at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards, which is being televised from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas tonight. Most of our readers should be familiar with these two pickers from their work with Mountain Heart, or our recent post about Jim’s new CD.

The show goes live tonight, May 23, 2006 at 8:00 ET/PT on CBS.
