Billboard Hot 100 Fest: On Sale Now! With Skrillex, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and Nicki Minaj!
Strengthened by the soulful singing of Moore, a three-time winner of the SPBGMA's award for Best Contemporary Male Vocalist and the recipient of the IBMA's award as Best Male Vocalist in 1994 and 1997, and the deep vocal tones of Deaton, IIIrd Tyme Out is the product of a group effort. Mandolin player and harmony vocalist Wayne Benson replaced Alan Bibey and banjo player Barry Abernathy replaced Terry Baucom shortly before the band recorded their third album, Grandpa's Mandolin in 1993. Abernathy was subsequently replaced by Steve Dilling. IIIrd Tyme Out continues to set the pact for bluegrass singing. The group was named Vocal Group of the Year by the IBMA in 1998, returning in 1999 with John & Mary. Plus, two live albums, 1998's Live at the MAC and 2001's Back to the MAC, were also popular items with both fans and critics. 2004 saw the release of The Best Durn Ride while 2006 brought yet a third live album, Round III at the Mac. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi
