On the next edition of Jubilee, recorded live at the 2012 International Bluegrass Music Association Fan Fest in Nashville, two acts take the stage: bluegrass/country guitarist Josh Williams and his band and acclaimed Kentucky vocalist/guitarist Charlie Sizemore and his band.

Josh Williams, who was born near Paducah, KY, taught himself to play guitar and mandolin around the age of nine, and he recorded his first project when he was 10. Since then, his career has spanned several bands, and between 2003 and 2007, he toured with the top-ranked band Rage for 300 days each year. In 2008 and 2009, he was recognized with the IBMA guitar player of the year award.
Charlie Sizemore is known for both his vocal and songwriting skills. Born in Eastern Kentucky in Magoffin County, he joined Ralph Stanley’s Clinch Mountain Boys at the age of 17, replacing the late Keith Whitley for almost the next decade. After this stint, he earned his law degree and passed the Tennessee bar exam, before forming the Charlie Sizemore Band.
