Cadillac Sky returns to Wintergrass 2008 for just one day this year. This is a band that favors hard driving progressive bluegrass. This band traditional roots are express in a song that is a tribute to Bill Monroe “Never Been So Blue”, yet they are moving towards the future with their style and original tunes. Mandolinist Bryan Simpson is becoming a pretty successful songwriter with songs being recorded by artists including George Strait, Martina McBride, Gretchen Wilson, Diamond Rio. Formed in 2002 they have really made a mark already in acoustic music. Ricky Skaggs signed them to his Skaggs Family Records because he really liked the sound and values of this band Highlight of 2007 for this band were being nominated for Emerging Artists of the Year at the 2007 IBMA Awards, appearing at the Grand Ole Opry and on the CMT program Loaded.
