IBMA Awards Move to Opry House

The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) will hold its annual awards show at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville for the first time on Sept. 28. The ceremony was held at the Ryman Auditorium last year, and many people attending the IBMA’s World of Bluegrass week were unable to get tickets to the sold-out show. However, the move to the Opry House nearly doubles the number of available tickets. Tickets go on sale Aug. 18 to the general public but are currently on sale to IBMA members through the organization’s Web site and office. The IBMA’s World of Bluegrass week takes place Sept. 25-Oct. 1 at the Nashville Convention Center.
