From her tenure playing with the Claire Lynch Band, Eddie Adcock, Josh Graves, Jim Hurst, Kenny Baker, and Jesse McReynolds, to her seven International Bluegrass Music Association Bass Player of the Year awards, Missy Raines has proven herself without doubt as an iconic bluegrass instrumentalist. In 1998, Raines became the first woman to win IBMA’s Bass Player of the Year award and she went on to win the title repeatedly for the next several years. Her recording, “Swept Away”, which features the five first women to win IBMA instrumentalist awards--Raines, Allison Brown, Sierra Hull, Becky Buller, and Molly Tuttle--highlights this particular piece of Raines’ history. “Swept Away” was named 2018 IBMA Recorded Event of the Year.
