The “Queen of Bluegrass” Dale Ann Bradley chatted with Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos about her two 2021 IBMA nominations, and she shared her thoughts about Alison Krauss and Lynn Morris being inducted into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame.

Bradley is nominated for “Female Vocalist of the Year,” along with Brooke Aldridge, Rhonda Vincent, Siera Hull, and Molly Tuttle, as well as for “Gospel Recording of the Year” for “After Awhile.” “The ‘Female Vocalist’ nominees are all good girls, I like them all,” she said.

“I love the gospel song ‘After Awhile’ and I was tickled that it got in there,” she said. “I was thrilled, I have nothing to complain about.”

On her recent success, Bradley said, “I couldn’t be happier. When you write songs and you put an album together, it’s a little scary because you put your thoughts, heart, and emotion out there. I am always grateful when people like the songs. That is wonderful.”

Bradley’s plans for the future are “to keep moving, to keep writing, and meet as many wonderful people as she can.” She is excited to start touring again in August and she looks forward to playing in New York City in December of 2021.

Alison Krauss will be inducted into the coveted Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame later this year, along with trailblazing vocalist and banjo player Lynn Morris, and early bluegrass influencers the Stoneman Family. “I am so glad that Alison and Lynn are getting in there, that should have happened a long time ago,” she said. “Alison took our music up more notches than we can count. I was thrilled for both of them.”
