Cherryholmes Hanging It Up

Bluegrass group Cherryholmes will disband in early May after 12 years together.

Jere and Sandy Cherryholmes said the decision is just part of life.

“There comes a time in a family when seasons change,” they said in a statement. “We’ve always known this season would come. Now that it has, we believe it is only right that our young folks be allowed to follow their own dreams and goals for the future.”

The Grammy-nominated band, composed of parents Jere and Sandy and children B.J., Skip, Molly and Cia, earned International Bluegrass Entertainer of the Year in 2005 and was a Pollstar cover artist that same year.
