Billy Strings

Raised in Michigan and now based in Nashville, GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter, and musician Billy Strings is known as one of music’s most compelling artists. In the midst of yet another triumphant year, Strings is nominated for three awards at the 66th Annual GRAMMY Awards: Best Bluegrass Album (Me/And/Dad), Best American Roots Song (“California Sober” feat. Willie Nelson) and Best Country Duo/Group Performance (“High Note” with Dierks Bentley).

Most recently, Strings unveiled “Meet Me At The Creek > Pyramid Country > Must Be Seven > Meet Me At The Creek (Live at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Winston-Salem, NC 3/4/23),” a 38-minute live performance that showcases the energy of Strings' electric concerts. The release follows “California Sober,” a collaboration with legendary artist Willie Nelson and Strings’ first project since partnering with Reprise Records, as well as his most recent full-length album, Me/And/Dad, which was released last fall and features Strings alongside his dad, Terry Barber. The product of a longtime dream, the record features new versions of fourteen bluegrass and country classics that the two have been playing together since Strings was a young child.

Since his 2017 debut, Strings has been awarded Best Bluegrass Album at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards, Artist of the Year at the 2022 and 2023 Americana Music Awards, Entertainer of the Year at the 2021, 2022, and 2023 International Bluegrass Music Awards, Best New Headliner at the 2022 Pollstar Awards, Breakthrough Artist of the Pandemic at the 2021 Pollstar Awards and has performed on the 64th GRAMMY Awards, The Late Show with Stephen ColbertJimmy Kimmel Live!, PBS’ Austin City LimitsBluegrass Underground, as well as countless sold-out tour dates worldwide.
