So you’ve never pulled the trigger on firing up the car and driving to Nashville to attend the IBMA Awards show at the Ryman Auditorium or IBMA Fanfest at the Renaissance Hotel?
No problem. This year the awards show will be streamed live on two internet sites. IBMA’s new BluegrassNation.org and at BluegrassToday.com
The production team of MusicCityRoots.com will be doing the shoot and streaming through both sites.
In addition, BluegrassToday.com will be providing pre-show interviews on the red carpet (seriously?… I’ve never seen a red carpet at this show). Actually the interviews will be from the BMI Nominees Reception held earlier in the evening.
Interviews start at 6:45 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m..
Here are your links for the live feed:
In addition, the show will be broadcast on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, WSM-AM and wsmonline.com.
This is the last year that the awards show, World of Bluegrass and Fanfest will be held in Nashville. It is moving to Raleigh, North Carolina beginning 2013 for at least three years. Get your butts down to this while it is still in driving distance.
Call 888-GET-IBMA to get your tickets and / or visit IBMA.org for more information.
Who’s nominated anyway? In the past 4 years my nominations have lined up pretty well with the results, this year, not so much and that is ok.
See you there!
