Bluegrass Trio Nickel Creek Set Reunite To Record Upcoming 2014 Album Release

Billboard Magazine announced in a column yesterday that the critically acclaimed trio of Sara Watkins, Chris Thile and Sean Watkins- known as Nickel Creek- have reunited in the studio and recorded a new project that will be released on Warner Music's Nonesuch Records label.

The band was founded in 1989 and released six albums between 1993 and 2006, winning a 2003 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Nickel Creek disbanded in 2007 and each of the members have worked on solo projects and other collaborations since then.
"One insider says there will be a half-dozen Nickel Creek performances surrounding the release though exactly when and where is yet to be determined.A Nonesuch spokeswoman said plans are too preliminary to discuss Nickel Creek, a bluegrass trio of then-teens that formed in Southern California in 1990 and found unprecedented success in the genre. Their self-titled debut from 2000 has sold 1.1 million copies, according to SoundScan and their last album, 2005's "Why Should the Fire Die?" hit No. 17 on the Billboard 200.  When asked what her upcoming recording plans were, Sarah Watkins chose to pretty much not answer the question, smiling and coyly saying, "We'll see."
While we're waiting for a definitive answer to when the project will be released, take a look and listen to one of That Nashville Sound's favorite modern bluegrass songs, "The Lighthouse's Tale."
