Knee-Deep PLAYLIST, CODY SHULER, Special Guest

This week's Knee-Deep In Bluegrass finds Cody Shuler, leader of Pine Mountain Railroad, in the Knee-Deep Artist Spotlight. Cody has a project that was released earlier this year that features six originals of his, as well as six more that fit his style very well. Along with the core members, Cody Shuler, Jerry Cole and Bryan Turner, this CD also showcases the talents of guests Ron Stewart, Terry Baucom, Aubrey Haynie, Rob Ickes and more. This CD has been gaining popularity as evidenced by the increase in calls from promoters to book the band. Cody talks about the musical transition that took place after he was in a position to take over management and ownership of the band. Their style is unmistakably straight-forward, hard-driving BLUEGRASS. We will feature cuts from the self-titled project and also spend time talking about Cody's songwriting style. I hope you enjoy it.

Congratulations World of Bluegrass Winners!

Once again this year, Knee-Deep In Bluegrass had the opportunity to conduct two separate contests to send listeners to World of Bluegrass Week, presented by the International Bluegrass Music Association. The week includes a business conference trade show, IBMA Awards Show at the Ryman Auditorium and Bluegrass FanFest at the Nashville Convention Center. Each of the winners will receive 2 VIP tickets to the IBMA Awards Show for September 29, two VIP weekend passes for Bluegrass FanFest and 3 nights lodging in downtown Nashville at the host hotel, The Renaissance.

One winner was chosen from on-site entries at the Knee-Deep In Bluegrass booth at festivals this summer where I appeared. And the other from online entries through my website.

The first winner was CHARLES MOONEYHAM of Newport, Tennessee, who registered during the Red White and Bluegrass Festival this past July in Morganton, NC.

The next winner was KEVIN MILLER of West Jefferson, NC, who sent in an entry online after hearing the contest announced.

Congratulations to both Charles and Kevin. I look forward to seeing you and your guests in Nashville for World of Bluegrass!

Thanks to everyone who entered. I hope many of you will join us this year, September 26-October 2, 2011, for a great time. New price rates have been announced, as well as a different, welcoming atmosphere at the convention center. For details, please visit
