Prime Cuts Of Bluegrass – status uncertain

We have received a number of inquiries from readers asking about Prime Cuts Of Bluegrass, and when the next compilation from their long-running bluegrass radio service would be produced. Kirk and Becky Brandenberger have managed this service since 1992, allowing bluegrass artists to get their music to radio hosts and programmers efficiently, and at a much lower cost than sending complete promos.

We published a statement from the Brandenbergers last September where they announced that they would be retiring after the release of their 100th volume, and that a new owner was in the process of assuming control of the company. The next CD was expected to be released in January of 2010, and when it did not arrive, the questions started rolling in.

We heard from Becky recently with an explanation.

“At this time, Prime Cuts of Bluegrass is for sale. Earlier negotiations have fallen through. This is disappointing but we are hopeful that there will soon be a new owner so that the service can move forward.”

We hope that we can announce the resumption of this valuable service soon. Interested parties can reach Kirk and Becky online.

    Concerning the spbgma band competition 2010. I was very disapointed with the results, The audience told everyone there who should have been the winner. I dont thank its fair that the MC is allowed to build a certain group up, I really injoy coming to nashville and watching the band competition but after this year i believe it is my last.
