“Through songs and images we find ways to meet new people, build relationships and expand our horizons. Quilts of Valor Foundation and QOV's are becoming recognizable images throughout our country. Often you will see an image of a service member or veteran with a quilt; chances are, it is a Quilt of Valor. We are so pleased to note that we've also been heard - by Nu-Blu! It is with gratitude and a growing sense of excitement that we share our Quilts of Valor journey with Nu-Blu. We are honored that they share their songs in order to raise awareness of Quilts of Valor and our Mission to 'cover' service members and veterans with gratitude.” -Tammany McDaniel (Executive Officer QOVF)

About Nu-Blu: ;
Hailing from Siler City, NC, the textbook definition of a picturesque small southern town, Nu-Blu’s heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn’s caramel-coated soprano is one of the band’s defining traits, at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale. Daniel is the group’s backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who also handles band management. Austin Hefflefinger on banjo, and Justin Harrison on fiddle/mandolin round out the quartet’s warm, layered, American roots sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that can’t be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road.
Nu-Blu also hosts the internationally-syndicated TV show, Bluegrass Ridge. The program is available in 160 million homes in the US, airing on multiple networks like the Heartland Network, the Z Living Channel (seen onDish Network, COMCAST, ATT Uverse, Sling Television, Amazon Fire TV), The Family Channel, Keep It Country - UK and Country TV - New Zealand, and streaming online atwww.bluegrassridgetv.com“Bluegrass Ridge” , along with the RadioCast Bluegrass Ridge Radio, holds the distinction of being bluegrass’ premier bluegrass series, and the largest media source in the genre.
