The Del McCoury Band took top honors at the 13th annual International Bluegrass Music Association Awards (IBMA) last night (Oct. 17) at the Kentucky Center for the Arts in Louisville. The group won three awards, including its sixth for entertainer of the year, and the song of the year honor for its cover of the Richard Thompson-penned "1952 Vincent Black Lightning."

Dan Tyminski, a member of Alison Krauss' Union Station and lead vocalist on the "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" song "Man of Constant Sorrow," won his second trophy for male vocalist of the year. Rhonda Vincent won for the third consecutive time as female vocalist of the year. The "O Brother" follow-up live album "Down From the Mountain" (Lost Highway) was named album of the year.

Produced by T Bone Burnett, that set was recorded live at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium and includes performances by the Fairfield Four, John Hartford, Alison Krauss + Union Station, Tyminski, the Cox Family, Gillian Welch, David Rawlings, the Whites, and Emmylou Harris. It spawned the Down From the Mountain tour, which won the IBMA award for bluegrass event of the year.
