For Your Consideration List

Awards Eligibility Period: April 1, 2023 – March 31, 2024

(2024 For Your Consideration List Submissions now closed)

Professional IBMA members can view the For Your Consideration List in your first-round ballot email.

The For Your Consideration List of albums, singles and music videos is offered as a courtesy to our voting members as they fill out the first-round ballot of the IBMA Bluegrass Music Awards. The For Your Consideration List is for the following specific awards categories: Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Gospel Recording of the Year, Instrumental Recording of the Year, Collaborative Recording of the Year, and Music Video of the Year.

This list is populated solely by public submissions from Artists, Artist Teams, & Record Labels. We encourage these groups to coordinate their submissions. If you are a fan, you can help by sharing this information with your favorite artists!


A few things to keep in mind when submitting:

  • Please review the Awards Handbook for awards eligibility and criteria.
  • The IBMA staff does not contribute to or alter this list. The information will appear exactly as it was submitted. In the case of a duplicate submission, only one submission will remain.
  • Up to, but no more than, three (3) singles per album may be submitted. Once three (3) singles have been submitted for one album, additional singles submissions will be removed.
  • Please provide as much information in your submission(s) as possible.
