The first single, “Lonesome Weary Heart” from Audie Blaylock and Redline as they return center stage in 2008! As one would expect from Audie Blaylock, Redline consists of a winning team of exceptional musicians and vocalists with Jason Johnson on mandolin and vocals, Matthew Wallace on bass and vocals, Evan Ward on banjo and vocals, and Patrick McAvinue on fiddle. “We're excited about this band and are ready to get out there and play every day of the year if we can and entertain audiences with some great music,” he says. In 2005 and 2006, Audie Blaylock and Redline had the honor of being nominated for the International Bluegrass Music Association's Emerging Artist of the Year award. Audie Blaylock and Redline bring the energy of the early days of bluegrass to every show. Fans of Blaylock’s are looking forward to new and exciting things from him as well. Grammy award winning producer, Carl Jackson says, “Audie Blaylock is one of the most talented folks in bluegrass music today. He’s a top-notch guitarist and vocalist and I’m very pleased to know there’s a new project on the horizon. When Audie is involved, you can bet the music will be bluegrass at its finest.” Blaylock and Redline have been hard at work: adding dates; choosing songs; and recording since the bluegrass world saw him add another IBMA award to his existing list of honors. That was in October 2007 as Rounder recording artists Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper featuring Audie Blaylock brought home the 2007 Instrumental Group of the Year award at the 18th Annual International Bluegrass Music Awards show held at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, TN. “I’m extremely honored to receive the award that so many prestigious and talented musicians have been nominated for and received in the past. This is a great honor for myself and the entire group,” said Audie Blaylock. “This is particularly humbling when you consider the caliber of the past recipients such as Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Nickel Creek, Del McCoury and others,” he adds. Audie has been performing for years with some of bluegrass music’s most distinguished acts including the great Jimmy Martin and Rhonda Vincent & The Rage as well as doing session work that earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Album and an IBMA nomination for Recorded Event of the Year for" A Tribute to Jimmy Martin: The King of Bluegrass." This group project included Audie Blaylock on guitar and vocals along with a stellar lineup of musicians including former Sunny Mountain Boys J.D. Crowe, Paul Williams, and Kenny Ingram. He has also performed with the legendary Red Allen, The Lynn Morris Band and songwriting great Harley Allen. Audie is also a four-time IBMA Guitar Player of the Year nominee. With the release of his first solo CD, Trains are the Only Way to Fly, Country Standard Time said: "From the opening title cut to the finale, "Pages of Time,"there is no mistaking Audie Blaylock's music as anything but hard driving, traditional-style bluegrass." Born in El Paso, Texas into a family whose roots go back to the hills of Virginia and Tennessee, Audie learned to play guitar and sing with his parents and siblings, and went on to play locally in the Lansing, Michigan area where he grew up. In 1982, at age 19, Audie Blaylock joined Jimmy Martin and The Sunny Mountain Boys and spent nine years on the road learning the craft of bluegrass from one of the music's first-generation legends.
