Congratulations go out to Bryan Sutton for winning the 2015 IBMA Award for Guitar Player Of The Year! This marks the 9th IBMA Award for Bryan and we couldn't be prouder to have him be part of the ArtistWorks Guitar Faculty. Here's what Bryan says:
"I'm honored to receive this award. I don't play, write or perform with this kind of accolade in mind at all. Nobody gets into bluegrass with ideas of fame and fortune. I'm a fan of the process. I enjoy encouraging folks to find their own voice and their own process.
"At the awards ceremony I felt like sharing a few names of some great guitarists who are out there playing some amazing music. These players are part of the future of bluegrass. Some folks may know of these players but probably not all.
"The list I came up with is not complete and I could and should probably think of more to add, but this is what hit me at the time: Seth Taylor, Chris Eldridge, Jake Workman, Trey Hensley, Caleb Smith, Chris Luquette, Courtney Hartman, Rebecca Frazier, Jordan Tice, Grant Gordy, Billy Strings, John Stickley, Zeb Snyder, Molly Tuttle, Presley Barker."
