Bluegrass stars on the plane

Dan TyminskiBeing a bluegrass fan, it dawned on me that the guy sitting behind me on a flight Monday from New York to Nashville was bluegrass star Dan Tyminski. Never heard of him? He’s been a member of Alison Krauss and Union Station since 1994 and the winner of 10 Grammy awards. See more on his Web site.

Turns out he was returning from a couple of shows in Scotland and was excited about heading to L.A. in the next few days for the Grammys and some golf.

He’s up for a Grammy for his Wheels release. Best of luck!

Jerry DouglasOnce I got off the plane, I realized that Dobro player extraordinaire Jerry Douglas was also on board. Douglas has played on more than 1,600 albums. I have no idea how he’s done that. See his Web site.

Now that’s flying.
