“We’re extremely excited about Daniel and Carolyn Routh of Nu-Blu becoming the permanent hosts of ‘Bluegrass Ridge,’” said executive producer Jeff Moseley/CJM Productions. “Our tradition of bringing great Bluegrass music videos and artist interviews to our viewers remains the same. Nu-Blu’s love and passion of Bluegrass music, as well as their relationships with fellow Bluegrass artists brings an insider-depth to the show.”
The special two-part edition of “Bluegrass Ridge” is music fan’s chance to meet Nu-Blu as the new hosts, and get to know them on a more personal level. The special edition episodes will air on Heartland TV the week of July 30 and August 6. Featuring a combination of brand new music videos, the chart-topping group is taking Bluegrass music to the next level, now reaching millions of new viewers and listeners. “The best part of being a performer is all the folks we get to meet and the friends that we make. We look forward to even more of those friendships as we join viewers each week on Bluegrass Ridge,” says Daniel.
The regular hosted “Bluegrass Ridge” shows are set to begin airing the week of August 13, and beyond. The popular weekly 30-minute program features music videos from bluegrass’ biggest acts, along with artist interviews and behind-the scenes content, allowing viewers a rare first-hand look at a genre that’s never been hotter. Along with Heartland TV, “Bluegrass Ridge” also airs on The Family Channel, Keep It Country – UK and Country TV – New Zealand (check local listings). Bringing a new flair to the program, Nu-Blu will help propel the show to a new level, capturing interviews with guest artists both in-studio and while on the road playing festivals and venues nationwide.
