The Nashville Bluegrass Band
The Nashville Bluegrass Band was founded in 1984 by Alan O’Bryant, who began his bluegrass career as a teenager, and Pat Enright, who had previous success fronting his own band on the west coast. The pair met and began playing together in 1974, after both had relocated to Nashville. Recruiting Mike Compton and Mark Hembree, they recorded MY NATIVE HOME (1985) for Rounder Records. In 1988 NBB’s tour bus was involved in a serious road accident, and Hembree and Compton suffered such bad injuries that they were forced to leave to group. The band was soon boosted by the arrival of ex-Kentucky Colonel and Country Gazette member Roland White. And in 1993 they won a well-deserved Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album with their WAITIN' FOR THE HARD TIMES TO GO.
