The IBMA’s 31st Annual IBMA Bluegrass Music Awards will air on Circle TV and its affiliated platforms on Jan. 18 at 8 p.m. ET, with a repeat viewing at 12 a.m. ET. Taped at the Ryman Auditorium with additional performances and presentations from across the U.S., the show originally aired during IBMA Virtual World of Bluegrass. The first-ever virtual format has been viewed by a record number of bluegrass fans.
In conjunction with this special event, Circle TV is hosting a night of bluegrass programming including two Grand Ole Opry shows with Ricky Skaggs and Dailey & Vincent and also Old Crow Medicine Show, Billy Strings, and Molly Tuttle, as well as an episode of Opry Docs on Bill Monroe.
“The 31st Annual IBMA Bluegrass Music Awards not only will highlight the accomplishments of beloved bluegrass legends and trailblazers, but also will serve as another way for country music fans to engage with and enjoy an unforgettable night of music from the comfort of their own homes” said Drew Reifenberger, Circle Network general manager. “The Circle Network is honored to partner with the International Bluegrass Music Association to bring this event to our audience for the first time.”
“We are so excited to partner with Circle TV to air this year’s IBMA Bluegrass Music Awards” said Paul Schiminger, Executive Director of IBMA. “This was our first-ever virtual awards show, and everyone is proud of the exceptional performances and memorable presentations to celebrate many of the very best in bluegrass music today and over its 75-year history. Thank you to all who have worked tirelessly to make this happen. We hope this show establishes the building blocks for a lasting partnership to help spread bluegrass music around the world in the years ahead.”
