Last month, Cooper and Jutz were recognized by the International Bluegrass Music Association with IBMA Award nominations for their work telling the life story of Country Music Hall of Famer Mac Wiseman. The album, I SANG THE SONG (Life of the Voice with a Heart), which was produced by the duo with Wiseman, garnered “Song of the Year” and “Recorded Event of the Year” nominations. “Going Back to Bristol,” penned by Wiseman, Jutz and Cooper, and performed by Shawn Camp (Earls of Leicester) earned the nominations in both categories. Separately, “’Tis Sweet to Be Remembered,” performed by Mac Wiseman and Alison Krauss, on the same project produced by Jutz and Cooper, also earned a “Recorded Event of the Year” nomination.
Additionally, The Earls of Leicester garnered five nominations as a band with vocalist Shawn Camp claiming three more (mentioned above) in individual categories—Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year and Recorded Event of the Year.
Congrats to all the incredible artists and songwriters.
