Rob Ickes has been playing bluegrass with his band Blue Highway for over twenty years. During this time period he has been IBMA 'Bluegrass Dobro Player of the Year' fifteen times. Rob has played on countless recording sessions with artists such as Merle Haggard, Dierks Bentley, Patty Loveless, and Alison Krauss. He has also helped form a jazz –oriented trio, "Three Ring Circle". His most recent album Three Bells is a true Dobro summit, collaborating with fellow greats Jerry Douglas and the late Mike Auldridge. 

Trey Hensley's rich baritone voice excels whether singing classic bluegrass, traditional country or his own original compositions. Tremendous instrumental skills on acoustic and electric guitar, plus considerable songwriting talents, make him anyone's favorite music partner. He landed on the Grand Ole Opry when he was 11. In his young life Trey has worked with folks like Johnny and June Carter Cash, Ricky Skaggs, Alan Jackson, Peter Frampton, Marty Stuart and a whole lot more.
