2010 Brought Group Numerous #1s, Popular Videos & More
Nashville, TN— The Grascals recently celebrated another successful year with numerous #1s, popular videos, five-star shows and extensive press coverage behind them. The group’s current CD, THE FAMOUS LEFTY FLYNN’S, ruled the Bluegrass Unlimited Chart for an astounding four-month run at #1, while the single, “Last Train To Clarksville,” is that Chart’s #1 single this month. The disc also reigned supreme on the Bluegrass Music Profiles Chart (#1 for two months), and the single hit the top of the European Hot Disc Chart.
The Grascals toured extensively, delighting fans at over 150 shows that included high-profile outings with Hank Williams Jr.’s Rowdy Friends Tour; the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethon, the CMA Music Fest, the IBMA Fan Fest Stage, dozens of festivals, multiple Grand Ole Opry appearances and more. Their music video, “Last Train To Clarksville,” received a favorable response from critics and fans alike, and a new video, filmed at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, will hit the airwaves soon.
Change was in the wind for The Grascals throughout 2010; the band parted ways with Rounder Records after a successful six-year run and formed their own imprint, BluGrascal Records. The band celebrated a terrific first year with New Frontier Touring, and so much MOORE media joined The Grascals’ team in March. At the helm of The Grascals’ ship is Entertainment Evolution, the group’s artist management firm.
The Grascals’ Jamie Johnson sums up the year perfectly, saying, “We worked hard, we reaped a good bit of what we’ve sown, and we are continually blessed.” The group is shown here, receiving #1 award plaques for THE FAMOUS LEFTY FLYNN’S, at NorthStar Studios following the filming of Reno’s Old Time Music Festival television show.
