Kenny and Amanda Smith at IBMA

Some of the best fun I had this past week at World of Bluegrass was talking with the delightful Kenny & Amanda Smith.

We discussed their upcoming band album, Catch Me If I Try, their first record in more than four years. Look for it November 6.

Kenny also shared a few details about his new side project with Ronnie Bowman and Don Rigsby. They did a surprise set Saturday night at Fan Fest, with Rob McCoury on banjo, billed as The Rambling Rooks.

Not sure if that name will stick, but the music was mighty powerful.


We have a good many more video interviews shot at IBMA, which will be posted here over the next week or so. You can see all of our 2012 World of Bluegrass coverage here.
