"I ain't no joke, Jimmy!"
What began as a lighthearted comment between friends has become the tongue-in-cheek moniker of a brand spankin'
new collaboration among some of the most well-known and beloved artists in acoustic music.
NO JOKE JIMMY'S are Jamie Johnson, Adam Haynes, Ron Stewart, Darren Nicholson,
Terry Eldredge, Brandon Rickman, Dennis Parker and Kyle Perkins. As a collective, these fine fellas have seen
2 Grammys, at least a dozen Grammy nominations, an estimated 100 IBMA nominations and awards, over 100 SPBGMA
nominations and awards, and multiple Dove nominations.
Yep, it's a veritable Who's Who of multi-award-winning pickers and singers!
Call it a band that's not formally a band, but they're surely a band of friends that loves making music together.
They'll even be playing a few shows when possible. So far, so good! With veterans from The Seldom Scene, Ricky Skaggs'
Kentucky Thunder, Balsam Range, The Grascals, Lonesome River Band, Kenny and Amanda Smith and JD Crowe; these
guys have plenty material to grab from and have a blast playing tunes from each other's bands, along with songs from
their own new studio work -- fresh off the press.
