IBMA 2015 Vocal Group of the Year and Song of the Year for Moon Over Memphis!

We can’t thank everyone enough for the incredible week we’ve had in Raleigh! It was another grand week for the band and our families. We were blessed to be named IBMA 2015 Vocal Group of the Year, and to win Song of the Year for Moon Over Memphis!

We also received a high honor from the Governor’s Office. We were inducted into The Order of the Long Leaf Pine, which is North Carolina’s highest civilian honor. Thank you to Senator Jim Davis for presenting it to us onstage on Friday night! We are so proud of our home state.

We are so blessed to have you all for our friends. Playing this music is reward enough, and any recognition is just humbling. Thank you for your support for these 8 years. Here’s to more!...
