    Biography

    Blaine Sprouse - Fiddler

    "If You're Gonna Play In Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band)" proclaims the 1984 Billboard Hot Country Single #1 song. So who did supergroup Alabama call upon to fiddle the memorable chart topper and the entire Roll On album? Blaine Sprouse.

    Three years later, Joe Wilson tapped the Kenny Baker protégé for the National Council for the Traditional Arts' genre-blending Masters of the Folk Violin tour, in which Sprouse was to fiddle alongside Baker. Sprouse was unable to participate due to unforeseen circumstances; sixteen-year-old Alison Krauss stepped in, paving the way for her historic rise.

    Sprouse continued to carve an impressive niche, performing with both Grand Ole Opry members and young turks of bluegrass, including those who would pick together regularly at Nashville's world famous Station Inn: The Dreadful Snakes, The Sidemen, Nashville Jug Band and The Cluster Pluckers, with whom Blaine played for former president and vice-president Bill Clinton and Al Gore.

    Blaine's professional career started with Jimmy Martin and continued with James Monroe, Jim and Jesse, the Osborne Brothers, Charlie Louvin and as a fill-in Blue Grass Boy for Bill Monroe.

    Sprouse fulfilled a lifelong desire to return to school to complete his education and earn a law degree. But in 2009, music interest resurfaced when his fourth solo recording, Dogwood Winter, was re-issued as Appalachian Mountain Fiddler.

    Also a gifted mandolin and guitar player, Sprouse is at home in bluegrass, blues, swing, jazz and folk. With his return to the stage, Blaine's heart is answering the fiddler's call. As he stated in a Frets Magazine profile, "Music is my life. I just love to play."

    Fiddle and bow in hand, Blaine Sprouse is back.
