Until April of 1999, the dynamic family band known as Cherryholmes did not exist, and half of its youthful members hadn’t even picked up an instrument. In five short years, this high-energy Nashville-based band was named 2005 IBMA’s Entertainers of the Year.
Cherryholmes has many qualities that make them unique, but the basis of their success lies in plain, old-fashioned hard work combined with shining star talent that only appears to glow more brightly with each performance. They embody the American Bluegrass dream.
All six band members pull their creative ideas to form their own new brand of bluegrass music. Every member takes a turn singing lead and showcasing their abilities. Their live shows include twin fiddles, Irish step dancing, classic country yodeling, and old-time claw hammer in addition to their dynamic bluegrass.
They have continued to receive many industry nominations and awards- including a Grammy nomination in 2006 for their first commercial release “Cherryholmes”. Their second release on Skaggs Family Records “Cherryholmes ll” became available in May 2007. Cherryholmes have also become regular performers on the historic Grand Ole Opry.
