Upcoming performances add to another pivotal year for Strings, who are nominated
in two categories at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards: Best Bluegrass Album (Renewal) and Best American Roots Performance (“Love and Regret”). Additionally, Strings is # 2 on Pollstar’s Live 75 chart at the end of the year, having spent 20 weeks on the charts in 2021.

Released now via Rounder Records (stream / buy here), Renewal was produced by Jonathan Wilson and strengthens Strings’ position as a singular artist who honors the history of the music that inspires them, while continually pushing it forward. . With the sixteen tracks on the record, Strings shares a more personal and honest perspective through his songwriting, while incorporating his wide range of influences with elements of bluegrass, classic rock, metal, psychedelic music and more. .

Reflecting on the record, Strings shares, “I’m listening to this album now and it’s moving. I could sit there and polish it forever, but there’s a point where it’s like building a house of cards. . Yes, I could add an extra tower on top, but it might collapse. I’ve always doubted myself, and I still do, but this album makes me think, ‘Hey, you’re okay, kid . You just have to keep going. ‘”
In addition to Strings (voice, guitar, mandolin, piano, synth, guitjo) and Wilson (celesta, percussion, harpsichord), the record includes the group of Strings-Billy Failing (banjo, piano, choirs), Royal Masat (bass, backing vocals) and Jarrod Walker (mandolin, guitar, backing vocals) – as well as special guest musicians Spencer Cullum (pedal steel), John Mailander (violin) and Grant Millikem (synth).

Renewal adds to a triumphant career for Strings, which won Best Bluegrass Album at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards for its 2019 record Home. Released with immense success, The Associated Press praised the album, saying that “it is its creative musical storytelling, coupled with a solid voice on Home that should seal the deal, appealing to fans of the genre. and create new ones … the perfect blend of sheer talent and courage “, while the Wall Street Journal proclaimed” Billy Strings has clearly established himself as one of the best flat guitar players of this era ” and Rolling Stone declared “one of the most dynamic young stars in string music.” Strings and record also topped Billboard’s 2020 year-end charts in both Bluegrass categories: Top Bluegrass Artists and Best Bluegrass Albums.

Raised in Michigan and now based in Nashville, Strings is known as one of music’s most compelling artists. Since his debut in 2017, he has received the Breakthrough Artist of the Pandemic at the 2021 Pollstar Awards, named Artist of the Year and Guitarist of the Year at the 2021 International Bluegrass Music Awards and has performed on PBS’s “Austin City Limits” and “Underground Bluegrass.” A respected figure in all genres, Strings has also recently collaborated with a wide variety of artists, including Bill Kreutzmann, Luke Combs, Del McCoury, Fences, RMR and many more.
