Nashville, TN — IBMA Entertainers of the Year, The Grascals, have the # 1 CD on both the Bluegrass Unlimited and Bluegrass Music Profiles Charts this month.

“It’s a thrill to be recognized for your hard work,” says group co-founder Johnson of the dual number ones. The Grascals received the good news just after returning from their first tour of France.

The disc has already spawned a hit single, “Last Train To Clarksville,” which currently sits at #4 on the BMP Chart and #15 on the BU Chart. The CD’s title track moves to #18 (BMP) and #22 (BU). Additionally, “Train” is one of Sirius XM BLUEGRASS JUNCTION’s MOST-PLAYED TRACKS with 52 spins, while the disc hits the show’s MOST-PLAYED ALBUMS Chart’s Top 5 this week with 135 spins.

Meanwhile, the sextet’s “Last Train To Clarksville” video goes viral; appearing on over 200 country and bluegrass industry websites, while simultaneously spreading to social networking sites such as YouTube,Twitter and Facebook. The music clip premiered on AOL/The Boot the week of July 19, making it the first bluegrass artist video ever debuted on the site.
