Lee Ann Womack and award-winning musician Jerry Douglas have been tapped to co-host the 25th annual International Bluegrass Music Awards, Oct. 2, in Raleigh, N.C. The awards are the most prestigious in the bluegrass field and honor the year’s outstanding talent as well as new Hall of Fame inductees.

Lee Ann, of course, has made her name through country music (and has a new album on the way), but she has always been a huge bluegrass fan. “To be part of the IBMA awards is such an honor,” Lee Ann said in a release about the event. Jerry Douglas, regarded as one of the world’s finest Dobro players, has won numerous IBMA awards.

The awards ceremony is part of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass 2014 event, which runs from Sept. 30 through Oct. 4.
