Welcome

Blue Highway has earned 25 collective IBMA Awards, 6 SPBGMA Awards, one Dove Award, and two Grammy nominations as a band, plus two Grammy Awards among its current members.

Blue Highway was voted the Favorite Bluegrass Artist of All Time by the readers of Bluegrass Today in April 2016.

Tim Stafford received honors as 2014 IBMA Songwriter of the Year and 2015 SPBGMA Guitar Player of the Year.  Shawn Lane was nominated as 2015 IBMA Songwriter of the Year, while Gaven Largent was recently nominated as 2016 SPBGMA Dobro Player of the Year.

Blue Highway charted the Most Radio Airplay of any Bluegrass Artist in 2014, per the  2014 Bluegrass Radio Airplay Chart, storming national airplay charts with their heralded album The Game.

The Game  topped multiple charts at #1 including reigning at #1 for 7 consecutive months on the Bluegrass Unlimited Album Chart, and was named the #1 Bluegrass Album of the Year by critic Daniel Mullins in his end of the year Top 20 Albums of 2014 list in Bluegrass Today.

As momentum continues to build for the 22 year strong powerhouse band, Blue Highway is currently in studio recording on their 11th studio album, and rolling on with a rich legacy carried on by three powerhouse songwriters and vocalists in Tim Stafford, Wayne Taylor, and Shawn Lane, whose harmonies soar over the dynamic banjo of Jason Burleson and the explosive dobro of Gaven Largent
