What's Going On

Best Wishes For 2016 

I would like to take time to wish everyone a very happy 2016. Looking to be a busy year for me. I will be doing several instruction camps this year including Kamp Kaufman, Bluegrass Camp Germany and LMU Bluegrass Camp. Look for me on the road with The Dale Ann Bradley Band along with another upcoming project and new CD. Hoping to be healthy this year and be able to perform at places I had to cancel in the past. Cancer is clear, so I am focusing on getting back to life again. I will still require treatments every 2 weeks at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN, but I think I can make it all work in order to be able to still play. Again, thanks to everyone for all your support of me and my family this year. God Bless !!

Induction To Atlanta Country Music Hall Of Fame 

Very honored to be inducted into The Atlanta Country Music Hall Of Fame on November 28, 2015. I had lived in a suburb of Atlanta when I was just a kid around 1966-67. Great to be honored by such a wonderful organization. A dream come true !


I am very happy to announce that as of October 1, 2015, I am once again cancer free. This makes me a 3-time survivor!!! I have been in a clinical trials program at Vanderbilt in which I have been taking a reseach drug called "Nivolumaub" ( also known as Opdivo. I will remain on a maintenance dose for the rest of my life. Very happy how quickly the drug has taken care of my Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Recovery is still gonna be a slow process due to all the past chemotherapy I have received. Thanks for all your support and you prayers. 


Very proud to make the final ballot at this year's 2015  International Bluegrass Music Association's Awards in the following categories:
 "Dobro Player Of The Year"
 "Best Liner Notes For A Recorded CD" for my liner notes from "The Next Move"

Thanks to everyone who voted !!
