Vocalist-mandolinist Lou Reid is definitely a mover and a shaker in the wonderful world of bluegrass, so that it was no real surprise when he shaped another great group, Carolina, in the first ’90s. Reid, who acquired used Doyle Lawson as well as the Seldom Picture, come up with the music group in 1992, and by 1994, that they had gained IBMA’s Emerging Musician of the entire year award. As the line-up from the music group changed over another a decade, the underlying audio remained on the forefront. Reid and Carolina’s initial record, Carolina Blue, was implemented in 1995 by Carolina Moon, that was nominated for Record of the entire year with the IBMA. The music group followed using a third record, Lou Reid & Carolina, in 1996, and, four years afterwards, released Blue Heartache (both released by Rebel Information). It might be five years and a line-up transformation before Reid and Carolina’s following release, Period, in 2005. Reid was became a member of this time around by vocalist Christy Reid, guitarist Kevin Richardson, banjoist Trevor Watson, and bassist Joe Hannabach. Released on Lonesome Time Records, the record also featured several high-profile guest performances, including Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, and Jerry Douglas.
