the progressive bluegrass movement as their shows include bluegrass versions of country music, rock, and even pop. What does it take
for a bluegrass band to remain popular for more than four decades? For The Seldom Scene, it’s taken not only talented musicians,
a signature sound, and a solid repertoire, but also a sheer sense of fun.
years of doing what he grew up wanting to do. “By the time we put this band together”—he’s talking about IIIrd Tyme Out, his
musical vehicle for over twenty years now—“I was realistic enough to know that bands come and go. Being able to stay together
is the hurdle that everyone faces. So I didn’t have a preconceived notion that someday I’d be celebrating twenty years with IIIrd Tyme Out—
but I did feel like I would be playing music for the rest of my life.”
As it turns out, while many bands have come and gone since that May in 1991, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out have endured.
In the process, they’ve managed to climb to the top not just once, but twice—winning a slew of IBMA vocal awards, including two Male
Vocalist of the Year honors, in the mid and late 1990s, then persevering through rough times to see Moore recapturing the Male Vocalist
trophy for the past three years. Along the way, they’ve made a whole new generation of fans, and with the release of Timeless Hits From
The Past… BLUEGRASSED by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, the quintet are poised to deliver their distinctive kind of music more widely than ever.
“All the awards, all the recognition, those things are just by-products of doing what we love to do —and of having everybody pulling in the
same direction. So to get them is a little overwhelming, sometimes. But when you know that somebody else out there is getting something
from you because of your music, well, that’s the thing about music that got me into it—just the love of the music, and the way it made me feel.
It always has been therapeutic, and it still is—and you can’t ask for more than that.”

other bands of this style. They have received critical acclaim for their first album Down In A Celland their second release,
Children of the Mountains garnered the group their first #1 song, “Anywhere is Home Again.” On the third album, Run, they achieved significant
Bluegrass Today chart success appearing almost every week of 2013. “Rich Man Daughter” was the first single from the album which
went to #1 on the chart only three weeks after it was released. Several other songs the album climbed as high as #2 and many weeks
they have had as many as 4 songs from the album appearing at one time.2014 proved to be a stellar year for the group who garnered two
IBMA nominations for IBMA Emerging Artist of the Year and IBMA Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year for

Call it retro, hillbilly, bluegrass or rockabilly, the group strives for something Kody simply calls “dern good entertainment.”
Deeply rooted in North American folk music, Norris has crafted a performance that harkens back and tips a hat to the traditions
created by Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin’s showmanship, the Stanley Brothers’ harmonies, performances of the Grand Ole Opry and a
bit of Vaudeville. Top notch picking is center stage, but humor and visual flash are part of the entertaining package. Always clad in
colorful, tailored suits adorned with rhinestones, ties, classic hats and ornate boots, the band earns its moniker as a “show.”
The brand is traditional, clean cut, acoustic and always entertaining.
The foursome is fronted by Norris on guitar and his fiddling “sweetie,” Mary Rachel Nalley, Tyler Wiseman on bass,
and Josiah Tyree on banjo.
