Nashville, TN â€“ And the winner isâ€¦. Rambo McGuire for Best Bluegrass Album of the Year. The 43rd Annual GMA Dove Awards took place at the Fox Theater in Atlanta on April 19th with Rambo McGuire capturing top honors for Grassroots Rambos on Gospel Musicâ€™s biggest night.
Produced by Dony McGuire for Rambo McGuire Records, the album celebrates the early mountain style of The Rambos and the timeless songs of Dottie Rambo. Featuring Dony, Reba, Destiny and Israel with special guest and founding member, Buck Rambo, the album is the first in a series of â€œRemembering the Rambos.â€
“We are thrilled to receive this recognition as artists,” says Reba. “Grassroots Rambos is a project so near and dear to our hearts as it reflects our family’s rich musical heritage and carries on the legacy. Singing this music is even sweeter the second time around.”
Four years after her home-going, The Dove Award for Bluegrass Recorded Song of the Year was awarded to Dottie Rambo for her classic song, “Mama’s Teaching Angels How to Sing.” A Dove also went to The Isaacs who performed the song on their project Naturally (Gaither Music Group).
Rambo McGuire is already at work on their next project, Classics, which will feature signature family harmonies and the Dottie Rambo compositions that were the foundation of their monumental success.
