In 2014, Balsam Range took home both the "Entertainers of the Year" and the "Vocal Group of the Year" award at the International Bluegrass Music Awards. Balsam Range is comprised of five gifted friends who all hail from western North Carolina and love performing bluegrass. Balsam Range is Buddy Melton (fiddle, lead and tenor vocals), Darren Nicholson (mandolin, octave mandolin, lead vocals, baritone and low tenor vocals), Dr. Marc Pruett (banjo), Tim Surrett (bass, dobro, baritone and lead vocals), and Caleb Smith (guitar, lead & baritone vocals). They thoughtfully and respectfully adopted the name of a majestic range of mountains that surround part of their home county of Haywood, NC where the Great Smoky Mountains meet the Blue Ridge, the Balsam Range.
