They eventually found themselves in Boone, NC, where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He invited the band to play at his festival, MerleFest, a catalyst in launching the Grammy-winning career they enjoy today.
Rolling Stone Magazine praises the bandâ€™s ability to â€œmarry old-time string music and punk swagger.â€ This boundless energy and spirit have earned them the honor of being inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry and has won two Grammy Awards: Best Folk Album for Remedy (2014) and Best Long Form Music Video for Big Easy Express (2013). Additionally, their classic single, â€œWagon Wheel,â€ received the RIAAâ€™s Platinum certification in 2013 for selling over 1,000,000 copies.
