Success came quickly for the band, yielding a Grammy nomination for the group’s debut album. In 1999, Cordle decided to re-form the band and with the newly assimilated Lonesome Standard Time, released “Murder on Music Row” in 2000. The project was nominated for another Grammy, reached No. 1 on both the Americana and bluegrass charts, and the title track was named Song of the Year by the Country Music Association and the International Bluegrass Music Association.
