Bradley chatted with Digital Journal about her latest IBMA nomination.
On her latest nod, the award-winning songstress said, “Being nominated among so many talented, hard-working, deserving artists is a privilege. Bluegrass is so blessed in the fact that the artists are truly ‘in love’ with the music. We love the lyrics, (because most of us have probably lived them), we make friends that become family, we come to the aid of our fellow bluegrassers (fans or artists). It’s very humbling to be nominated among a group that is so talented.”
In addition, her latest studio album, Pocket Full of Keys, topped the Roots Music Report’s Bluegrass chart the week of August 6, thus marking her first album with Pinecastle Records after re-joining the label last year. Her lead single from the album is “Til I Hear It From You,” which continues to get airplay across the bluegrass and acoustic music stations. It is a cover of the 1990s hit Gin Blossoms recording.
Previously, Bradley have covered some from other genres and made them their own. These include Tom Petty’s “Won’t Back Down,” Fleetwood Mac’s “Over My Head,” as well a U2’s “Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”
