Napa, Calif. — The ArtistWorks Academy of Bluegrass has announced its sponsorship of the the 22nd Annual International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, scheduled for Thursday, September 29, 2011 in Nashville, Tennessee's historic Ryman Auditorium.

Nominees announced for this years awards include The Boxcars, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, The Gibson Brothers, Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas and Lonesome River Band. 'Rare Bird Alert', the new album from Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers, produced by Academy of Bluegrass teacher Tony Trischka, is nominated for Album of the Year.

The IBMA Awards Show is the centerpiece of the World of Bluegrass Week September 26 - October 2 in Nashville, Tenn., which also includes the IBMA Business Conference and Bluegrass Fan Fest.
