Twang Tuesday – Part 1 -Cherryholmes

Ok so once again it takes me a while to find some bands, but eventually I get there! Last night I was looking at the Roots Music Report and saw a band at number 19 Cherryholmes and their album Cherryholmes IV. So I checked Rhapsody and they only had up to III and when I checked the website I saw that IV will be released in June. So I put Cherryholmes II on the mp3 player and gave it a listen. Now I know why the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) named them “2005 Entertainers of the Year” , they can flat out play and sing! I’ll listen again and maybe to Cherryholmes III this afternoon and write a complete review tonight! Until then enjoy their performance of “I Don’t Know” from the 2005 IBMA Awards Show!
