With the recent success Les has had in Bluegrass, it was only natural to start an FMG Bluegrass division. In addition to hosting his award-winning, nationally syndicated Bluegrass Gospel radio show he also writes a Bluegrass column for Scoops Magazine. His radio promotion is second to none in the areas of Bluegrass and Bluegrass Gospel, as is evidenced by Les promoting 8 of the past 12 #1 songs in the Singing News Bluegrass Chart. He has produced, played and/or promoted hit songs for the Primitive QT, Heaven’s Mountain Band, Marty Raybon, Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers, Little Roy and Lizzy, Larry Stephenson Band, King James Boys, Easter Brothers, Earl Scruggs, Marksmen and many others. Les is also an IBMA Awardwinner!
Les Butler states, "Although I've been in Southern Gospel music for over 40 years, it's very obvious that I have a deep love for bluegrass as well. I have been blessed to produce and play for some of the giants in Bluegrass and Bluegrass Gospel music. This is a natural step in the progression of FMG. And, this is a great time to announce that Heaven's Mountain Band will be moved up to FMG Bluegrass. FMG is our top label and they have earned the promotion. Their success over the past 4 years has been astounding. With multiple #1 songs and a full date book, they are simply one of the hottest groups in Bluegrass Gospel music. I am proud to be one of their producers, their manager and more importantly, their friend!
Butler continues, "If you are a Bluegrass Gospel artist in search of a good home, and you are serious about your ministry and your music, I'd love to talk to you. Also, be watching for a special announcement regarding a Bluegrass Gospel event coming this fall. I'm excited that BMG/FMG will be a big part of this event."
