IBMA Sweepstakes -- still time to enter....

Folks -

Jim didn't mention the IBMA Sweepstakes with his playlist posting, so let me take just a second to remind you to enter this contest very soon. From now until September 8th, you can enter once daily by clicking here and filling out a simple entry form. Grand Prize from the IBMA folks includes 2 VIP tickets to the IBMA Awards on September 28th, 2 passes for Bluegrass FanFest (September 29-October 1), 3 nights accommodations at the Hilton Downtown Nashville, and a $500 traveling allowance/stipend. For more information, see our original message about this sweepstakes in our August 18th post.

Birthday Boy Jim (and Marti, too) did an excellent job paying tribute to fellow August 27th birthday boys Carter Stanley & J.D. Crowe on yesterday's show. I got to listen to parts of the show on my way home from the outstanding Pickin' in the Pasture festival in Lodi, NY. Kudos to UCONN alum Andy Alexander, his wife, Susan, and son, Jesse -- they do a fabulous job putting together this festival at their sheep farm in New York's Finger Lakes region, and the talent lineup there is second to none. I'll post more about PIP later this week (and hopefully, a few pictures, as well), before I head to Thomas Point on Thursday.
