I just got around to watching this year's CMA awards. I always record award shows so I can skip the ads and acceptance speeches. blah. And while this is the bluegrass thread, I don't think there is a upright country thread, I'm just gonna leave this here. LOTS OF DBs ON STAGE! I was kinda floored that there were several songs/bands that used the DB on stage that night. I seem to remember at least 4 acts that used DB. That's fantastic! Oh, and there was a cameo of my favorite dobro player, Jerry Douglas too. Sure, plenty of electrics too, but It was a good night for acoustic instruments!
