Stuart’s to Host Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out April 8< < Back to
As it turns out, while many bands have come and gone since that May in 1991, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out have endured. In the process, they’ve managed to climb to the top not just once, but twice—winning a slew of IBMA vocal awards, including two Male Vocalist of the Year honors, in the mid and late 1990s, then persevering through rough times to see Moore recapturing the Male Vocalist trophy recently. The quintet’s Cracker Barrel Old Country Store release, Timeless Hits From The Past…BLUEGRASSED, made Billboard’s Top 5 Best-Selling Bluegrass Albums of 2013.
The success of that album, released separately from an established bluegrass record label, gave Moore the idea to release the band’s next album on his own. So he started Break A String Records and released their latest album, It’s About Tyme in September 2015. Recorded at Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Studio in Nashville, TN, the album has been a record-breaking, career milestone for Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out. To date, it’s produced three #1 Hits; “Brown County Red,” “CottonTown,” and the Moore original, “I’m Leaving You And Fort Worth Too.”
The success of It’s About Tyme has resulted in a 2016 IBMA Nomination for Album of the Year. Indeed, if one measure of success is the degree to which younger and newer musicians look to a group for inspiration, then IIIrd Tyme Out is about as successful as a bluegrass group can be, for a whole generation of young pickers and singers can be heard across the country trying their hand at IIIrd Tyme Out classics.
