February 6, 2023—Molly Tuttle won Best Bluegrass Album at last night’s 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards for her acclaimed record, Crooked Tree.

Produced by Tuttle and Jerry Douglas, Crooked Tree explores Tuttle’s love of bluegrass and features collaborations with Sierra Hull, Old Crow Medicine Show, Margo Price, Billy Strings, Dan Tyminski and Gillian Welch. Released last spring via Nonesuch Records, the album landed on several “Best of 2022” lists including NPR Music, Premier Guitar, No Depression, PopMatters, Wide Open Country, The Bluegrass Situation and many more. Following the release, Tuttle unveiled a digital deluxe version of the album this past fall, which features renditions of the Grateful Dead’s “Dire Wolf,” and traditional folk song, “Cold Rain and Snow,” also made famous by the Grateful Dead, as well as live versions of album tracks “Dooley’s Farm” (feat. Jerry Douglas) and “Castilleja.” Stream/purchase here.

In celebration of the record, Tuttle was recently featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and PBS NewsHour, while she and her band, Golden Highway—Bronwyn Keith-Hynes (fiddle), Dominick Leslie (mandolin), Shelby Means (bass) and Kyle Tuttle (banjo)—have also performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “CBS Saturday Morning” as part of their “Saturday Sessions” series.”

Tuttle and Golden Highway will continue to tour through this fall including upcoming headline shows at Menlo Park’s The Guild Theatre, Dallas’ The Kessler Theater and Houston’s The Heights Theater, while Tuttle will join Old Crow Medicine for select dates later this month. The band will also perform at several major festivals this year including New Orleans Jazz Festival, Railbird Music Festival and Bonnaroo. See below for the complete itinerary.
