    Although bluegrass is a genre that has its fair share of female artists, it's hard to deny that it's one of those musical arenas that happens to be more of a boy's club. But that didn't bother bluegrass fan Kimber Ludiker, who came up with a funny spin on the genre's masculine leanings. "It kinda started as a joke," the fiddle player explains. "Where I would just get a bunch of girls together and we'd play high-testosterone bluegrass music and wear power suits."...  | More »

    The music business is desperately in need of more teen acts that can actually play and write their own music, and the sister quartet The Sledge Grits Band perfectly fits the bill. The pop rock group from Littlerock, California is a favorite on the “Next Great Family Band” competition reality show on NBC Network COZI TV. They’ve been praised by all of the judges.
