Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out debut at #8 on Billboard’s Top 10 Bluegrass Album Chart

Rural Rhythm Records is very proud to announce Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out
hit #8 this week on Billboard Magazine’s Top 10 Bluegrass Album Chart with
their new album, PRIME TYME. Not only have retail sales been impressive, but
the album and first single have topped the radio charts as well.  The single,
“If Your Heart Should Ever Roll This Way Again,” hit #1 this month on
Bluegrass Music Profiles Magazine’s Top 30 Hot Singles, climbed to #8 on
Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine’s Top 30 Songs, and debuted on Power Source
Magazine’s Top 35 Songs, with the album making its debut on the Bluegrass
Unlimited Magazine’s Top 15 Album chart this month.

Radio host and music critics agree PRIME TYME has set the standard for quality
bluegrass music saying……

“Among bluegrass artists, there aren't many superstars, but Russell Moore &
IIIrd Tyme Out are certainly among them.  PRIME TYME is absolutely stunning in
its musicianship, harmony, song selection, and just all-around quality.  It may
be the best IIIrd Tyme Out disc ever!” Kyle Cantrell, SiriusXM Radio,
Bluegrass Junction

"Now, in their 20th year as a first-rate bluegrass band, one would expect that
Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out would produce a stellar anniversary CD. There
isn't a word in the English language that means 'beyond stellar' but as soon as
we have one, we'll apply it to their newest recording - PRIME TYME. In the
meantime, we'll have to be satisfied with words like: 'stupendous', 'colossal',
'brilliant', and 'astounding'. We congratulate Russell, Steve, Edgar, Justen,
Wayne and all the folks at Rural Rhythm Records. Here's a salute to the next 20
years!" - Brian McNeal, Prescription Bluegrass Radio

“Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out’s PRIME TYME proves once again why this band is
a consistent award winner.  Refreshing interpretations of songs on this
recording will make it one of your favorites.” Bob Webster, WAMU’s Bluegrass
Country, Stained Glass Bluegrass

"With PRIME TYME, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out demonstrate why they have led
the charts since the band first started 20 years ago. I'm not sure if this was
the meaning behind the title, but it also makes clear that they are in their
prime." - John Lawless, Bluegrass Today

“For many years now, IIIrd Tyme Out has been one the most enjoyable - and most
awarded groups in Bluegrass Music. After hearing their latest disc, I see no
reason why either of those distinctions should come to an end anytime soon.  I
can tell you this album is proof that Bluegrass Music is in some mighty fine
hands!” - Chuck Dauphin, Music News Nashville

“Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme definitely has the edge in PRIME TYME. This
recording is chock full of outstanding music.” - Jim Fisher, WGCS Down Home

As the band celebrates their 20th anniversary, they continue to receive top
awards and accolades as evidenced by Russell Moore’s win as the 2011
International Bluegrass Music Association’s MALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR – his
fourth award in this category.  He is also a 6-time winner of the SPBGMA -
MALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR award.  IIIrd Tyme Out is no doubt one of the top
awarding-winning bands in bluegrass, receiving over 50 Industry Awards during
their impressive career including:  7-time winner of the IBMA - VOCAL GROUP
OF THE YEAR; 5-time winner of the SPBGMA - VOCAL GROUP OF THE YEAR, plus
many more.
