It has just been announced that the nominees for the 26th Annual International Bluegras Music Awards will be revealed on Wednesday, August 12 during a special live broadcast on SiriusXM channel 61, Bluegrass Junction. The show will air from 11:00 a.m. to noon (EDT).
The Gibson Brothers, who have been selected as hosts for the Awards Show on October 1, will read the list of nominees in a program hosted by Kyle Cantrell from the SiriusXM studios in Nashville.
