Arkansauce Wins Bluegrass Artist of the Year
An exciting night for the crew of Arkansauce at last night’s Arkansas Country Music Awards in Conway. The annual Arkansas Country Music Awards is a non-profit entity aimed at cultivating the music of the Natural State. The highly anticipated annual red carpet event covers the current music scene, honoring legends, producers, independent artists, and more.
Other nominees were Butch Suitt, Possum Trot, Spillwater Drive and Tacie and the Sunshine Band but it was no surprise to us that Northwest Arkansas’ own Arkansauce took home the award for Best Bluegrass Artist of the Year.
Arkansauce is a genre-hopping, four piece string band from northwest Arkansas, bending the rules and blurring the lines between bluegrass, newgrass, folk, americana, with notes of country, blues, and funk. With a loyal following growing every day in the Natural State and along their tour routes, the band is proud to be stepping into a hard-driving sound unique to the Arkansas quartet.
