Seasoned Bluegrass Group, Sideline, Teams Up With Doyle Lawson, Mountain Home Music For Bluegrass Trust Fund Benefit
"Come See About Me" Features Allstar Cast of Musicians

NASHVILLE, Tenn., -- October 4, 2018 -- Bluegrass music’s rich and vibrant history has always been the driving force for roots music powerhouse, Sideline , a six-piece group based in Raleigh, North Carolina. In coordination with Mountain Home Music , the band is pleased to announce their involvement in Come See About Me , a collaboration album produced by Bluegrass Hall of Famer Doyle Lawson , with proceeds benefiting the International Bluegrass Music Association’s (IBMA) Bluegrass Trust Fund.

The title track, written by Conway Twitty, features an all-star lineup including Sideline members, Steve Dilling, Skip Cherryholmes, Troy Boone, Bailey Coe , and Daniel Greeson as well as Doyle Lawson, Brooke Aldridge (2018 IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year), Darin Aldridge, Tim Surrett, Darren Nicholson, Donna Ulisse and over a dozen legendary performers. [Full list below.]

“We are excited to be apart of a project that recognizes a worthy cause,” says Skip Cherryholmes, guitar player for Sideline, “so many musicians give their lives for this music. It’s amazing to see a great lineup of artists stand together to support each other and many others; we are honored to be standing with them.”

Established in 1987 as a means to offer financial assistance to bluegrass music professionals in time of emergency need, the Bluegrass Trust Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable institution governed by an autonomous five-person board of trustees appointed by IBMA. With that goal in mind, Come See About Me was created to raise money and serve as a means of support for those wishing to give to the fund.

Sideline: Steve Dilling, banjo, Skip Cherryholmes, guitar, Jason Moore, bass, Bailey Coe, guitar, Troy Boone, mandolin, Daniel Greeson, fiddle, is a pedigreed six-piece ensemble whose style has set the pace in Bluegrass for over two decades. What started as a side project for the seasoned players soon moved to the front and center after the group discovered their pulse-pounding drive, perfected timing, and visceral emotion were the perfect combination for an award-winning band. 

Plans are underway for the band’s fifth full length album; a release is tentatively scheduled for spring of 2019 through Mountain Home Music. With an infectious on-stage energy, Sideline continues to endear audiences from coast to coast, including stops in New Jersey, California, and everywhere in between. Full tour schedule below.

“Come See About Me” performing artist include: Doyle Lawson, Josh Swift, Joe Dean, Dustin Pyrtle, Eli Johnston, Stephen Burwell, David Johnson, Caleb Smith, Tim Surrett, Audie McGinnis, Terry Eldredge, Donna Ulisse, Darin Aldridge, Brooke Aldridge, Steve Dilling, Skip Cherryholmes, Troy Boone, Bailey Coe, Daniel Greeson, Terry Smith, Darren Nicholson, John Bryan, Kyle Cantrell, Becky Cantrell and Chris Jones. The single is available now to radio programmers at AirPlay Direct .
