October 15, 2018
     NO TIME FLATT is the Bluegrass Band of the Year for 2018! The Tennessee Music Awards show is held annually at the University of Memphis Hamilton Performing Arts Center in Jackson, TN. This year on October 8th, No Time Flatt took home the 'star' for top honors.
     To no one's surprise, this band has been grabbing honors and festival/show dates since its inception in 2015. You probably have heard rumors that their fans are known as . . . well, they are called Flatt-heads! True story!
     The No Time Flatt band members are: Kevin Wright (guitar, vocals), Patrick Cupples (upright bass, vocals), Kevin Keen (mandolin), Steve Moore (banjo, vocals), and Becky Weaver (fiddle, vocals). Becky Weaver was out of town for the event; however, the award-winning fiddler, Ivy Phillips, filled in to help the group take top honors. The band truly has something special: Their songwriters are creative, their act is together and focused, and they are out to please their crowds.
