Two-time IBMA Entertainers of the Year The Grascals have parted ways with Rounder Records, the label that has been instrumental in the group’s success since 2004. “We appreciate them believing in us from the get-go, says The Grascals’,” says mandolin maestro, Danny Roberts. “They’ve meant so much to us and they supported us completely.”

The parting is amicable, according to Grascals manager Kirt Webster. “It was simply time for a change, and both parties realized that. We have nothing but respect for the label and the work they’ve done for us.”

Moving forward, the Grascals have two new projects on the assembly line. The likely first post-Rounder release is a new album tentatively set for mid-December. For 2011, reliable sources report, talks are underway concerning a possible Grascals TV show.
