What's Going On

Flashback and New Upcoming CD 

We have had a great season with Flashback. Made lots of new fans this Summer. Excited to be getting back into the studio in November to finish up our new CD. Very excited for you guys to hear our new music !! Stay tuned for more info and sample tracks.


Very happy to have signed as an endorsee for Fishman Products. They make the very best music electronics. So glad to be working with them. 

New Band Flashback / 1st single to radio 

Well, we finally have the new band up and running. We are called "FLASHBACK". We toured last year as this group with J.D Crowe. After Crowe retired in the Fall of 2015, we decided to keep the band going. We are in the studio working on a new CD for Pinecastle Records. The 1st single is "Foxhounds And Fiddles". This is a tune written by Richard Bennet and Don Rigsby.  You can read more about the new band, and also hear some of the additional tracks at:

Best Wishes For 2016 

I would like to take time to wish everyone a very happy 2016. Looking to be a busy year for me. I will be doing several instruction camps this year including Kamp Kaufman, Bluegrass Camp Germany and LMU Bluegrass Camp. Look for me on the road with The Dale Ann Bradley Band along with another upcoming project and new CD. Hoping to be healthy this year and be able to perform at places I had to cancel in the past. Cancer is clear, so I am focusing on getting back to life again. I will still require treatments every 2 weeks at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN, but I think I can make it all work in order to be able to still play. Again, thanks to everyone for all your support of me and my family this year. God Bless !!

Induction To Atlanta Country Music Hall Of Fame 

Very honored to be inducted into The Atlanta Country Music Hall Of Fame on November 28, 2015. I had lived in a suburb of Atlanta when I was just a kid around 1966-67. Great to be honored by such a wonderful organization. A dream come true !


I am very happy to announce that as of October 1, 2015, I am once again cancer free. This makes me a 3-time survivor!!! I have been in a clinical trials program at Vanderbilt in which I have been taking a reseach drug called "Nivolumaub" ( also known as Opdivo. I will remain on a maintenance dose for the rest of my life. Very happy how quickly the drug has taken care of my Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Recovery is still gonna be a slow process due to all the past chemotherapy I have received. Thanks for all your support and you prayers. 


Very proud to make the final ballot at this year's 2015  International Bluegrass Music Association's Awards in the following categories:
 "Dobro Player Of The Year"
 "Best Liner Notes For A Recorded CD" for my liner notes from "The Next Move"

Thanks to everyone who voted !!
