About the artist
If a bluegrass band could be engineered in a Kentucky lab, the end result would
probably sound a lot like Audie Blaylock and Redline. Blaylock honed his skills
as a member of Jimmy Martin’s Sunny Mountain Boys when he was just nineteen
years old. Nearly thirty years and a handful of IBMA awards later (including one
for Entertainer of the Year while with Rhonda Vincent and The Rage), Blaylock is
heading up his own band.
Four-time IBMA Guitar Player of the year nominee, Audie Blaylock has
performed with some of bluegrass music’s most distinguished acts over the
years 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.
In October 2007, Rounder recording artist Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper
featuring Audie Blaylock brought home the 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.
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,
