Carolina Music Awards 2010

Nu-Blu has been awarded Country Band of the Year by the Carolina Music Awards. The award was presented to the band last Sunday during the 3rd Annual Carolina Music Awards Show at the Progress Energy Center in Downtown, Raleigh, North Carolina. The focus of the Carolina Music Awards is the development of the music industry in the Carolinas, encouraging growth in music now and in the future.

Nu-Blu includes the talents of Daniel Routh, Carolyn Routh, Kendall Gales and Levi Austin who have garnered recent media attention including this month’s features in both The Alternate Root Magazine and Bluegrass Music Profiles Magazine.  Their new album, Nights was released just a few short months ago and is already receiving very impressive airplay on Bluegrass, Americana and Roots radio stations around the world.

It’s been a while since I’ve been so knocked out by a band and CD that I know little about.  You guys are phenomenal – Carol Beaugard, WFDU-FM and WAMU’S Bluegrass Country.

Nights is now available at, iTunes, Music Shed, CD Baby, Wal-Mart, the band’s website and more outlets.  For more information on Nu-Blu including a complete tour schedule, Booking and Media contacts, please visit
