2010 IBMA dobro player of the year Rob Ickes

Congratulations Mr. Ickes.


With that said: I would have liked to see Andy or Randy get some nods, since the rest are multi winners. IBMA needs some optical assistance. YMMV.



the official Chad Graves IBMA report:

Would like to say hey to all the folks I met out at IBMA, and old friends i got to see again. I had an absolute blast this year. I didnt get to sit around and play all the resos like i usually do, as that i was working so hard to push the HillBenders name. which, btw, if all goes like i think it might you may be hearing A LOT more of soon. Laughing

i did get the chance to swing by Bettys Dobro party. had a great time there, as always. Randy K rolled in twards the end and played a version of Dobro Chimes that pretty much melted my face. course about everything he does melts my face.
