Grammy Nomination for Rob & Trey

Before the Sun Goes Down has been nominated for Best Bluegrass Album. On seeing the list, Rob said, "Trey Hensley and I are honored to be in such good company for this Grammy nomination!"

Grammy 2016 Nomination

Rob Departs Blue Highway

“In 1994, I had the tremendous good fortune of being invited to join Blue Highway as a founding member. I can't imagine a better opportunity for a young dobro player, and Blue Highway has been a stellar creative home for me for 21 years. So it is truly with a heart full of gratitude — and more than a little sadness — that I announce my departure from the band." Read the rest of Rob's statement here

big quoteI'm sure I don't make a true 'critic' since I'm already such a fan, but this album from Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley is a wonderful piece of work. And my songwriting side is truly overwhelmed. Thank you, thank you, thank you. —Merle Haggard
