Last week, at the IBMA press conference, Sierra Hull and Doyle Lawson had a humorous exchange as they were announcing IBMA award nominees. Sierra made a comment about Doyle's sharp looking boots and noted that she only paid $15 for her shoes. Doyle's response was that his boots were free (thanks to Caboots.com)! Sierra Hull and Highway 111 were nominated for IBMA's Emerging Artist of the Year Award; Sierra was nominated for Mandolin Player of the Year,and "Daybreak," Sierra's latest CD was nominated for Best Graphic Design for a Recorded Project (AJ Roman, designer).
