article imageClaire Lynch wins 'Song of the Year' at 2014 IBMA awards

Bluegrass sensation Claire Lynch took home the award for "Song of the Year" at this year's International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) awards.
The 25th annual IBMA award ceremony took place in Raleigh, North Carolina, on October 2.
Lynch won for her song "Dear Sister," the title track of her latest studio album, which was well-received by Digital Journal. She co-wrote the tune with veteran songwriter Louisa Branscomb (who was responsible for writing Dale Ann Bradley and Alison Krauss' collaboration "I'll Take Love.") "Dear Sister" is an inspirational song about human faith, and brevity in the face of adversity. Most impressive about "Dear Sister" is that it was based on letters that were written by Branscomb's ancestors who fought in the Civil War.
In addition, Lynch also won the IBMA award for "Recorded Event of the Year" for "Wild Montana Skies," her collaboration with acoustic bluegrass group Special Consensus and dobro virtuoso Rob Ickes. This song was produced by Alison Brown, banjo player and co-founder of the independent record label, Compass Records.
Throughout her career, she has won the IBMA "Female Vocalist of the Year" honor three times, in 1997, 2010 and 2013; moreover, she has been nominated for two Grammy awards.
