Bio

Internationally recognized as the world's most renowned dobro player, Jerry Douglas ranks among the top contemporary artists in American music. In addition to his groundbreaking work as a member of Alison Krauss & Union Station, The Country Gentlemen, J.D. Crowe & The New South, Boone Creek, Strength in Numbers, Elvis Costello's Sugarcanes, and others, Douglas has graced over 2,000 recordings by such distinguished artists as James Taylor, Paul Simon, Ray Charles, Lyle Lovett, Elvis Costello, Garth Brooks, Charlie Haden, Earl Scruggs, Phish, Emmylou Harris, Bill Frisell, and The Chieftains, as well as the eight million-plus-selling soundtrack to O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000).

In recognition of his groundbreaking work, Doublas has garnered 13 Grammy Awards while holding the distinction of being named Musician of the Year by The Country Music Association (in 2002, 2005, and 2007), The Academy of Country Music (11 times), and The Americana Music Association (in 2002 and 2003), as well as being the recipient of numerous International Bluegrass Music Association awards. He is also the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Americana Music Association and was honored as the 2008 Artist in Residence at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. In 2004, the National Endowment for the Arts honored him with a National Heritage Fellowship, acknowledging his artistic excellence and contribution to the nation's traditional arts.

Traveler, Douglas's newest album, will be released on June 26th, 2012. The disc is the artist's first solo release since his acclaimed 2009 Christmas album, Jerry Christmas!, and features special guest vocals from Eric Clapton, Mumford & Sons, Paul Simon, Keb' Mo', Marc Cohn, and Alison Krauss & Union Station. Recorded in Nashville, New Orleans, New York, and Banbury, U.K., Traveler was produced by Russ Titelman. "For the first time in my career," says Douglas, "I found myself ready to step completely out of my comfort zone to begin a solo recording project with a producer. Giving someone else the controls of a personal endeavor to allow myself the freedom to focus entirely on what I would want to play in this new situation was something I had never allowed myself. This record is the culmination of a long career spent making friends and lending my sound to theirs. This time my friends have come onboard to lend their voices to me."
