The album was nominated for a 2022 Grammy for Best Americana Album, and their previous record What If also received a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album.
They perform at some of the top US festivals such as Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Pilgrimage Music Festival, Big Ears Festival, DelFest, FreshGrass, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Merlefest, and many others.
