Carolina Blue’s roots run deep in the tradition of Bill Monroe. The band was formed in 2007 after the release of the album "Nothing So Blue" by Bobby Powell and Tim Jones. Carolina Blue won the South Carolina state bluegrass championship at RenoFest in 2011. They also received their first Vocal Group of The Year Nomination at the 2018 SPBGMA Awards Show. They have appeared on the hit TV show “Song of the Mountains” as well as “The Bluegrass Trail” series on RFDTV. The band's repertoire consists of original songs (including Tim Jones' "Spring Will Bring Flowers", which was recorded by 2014 IBMA entertainers of the year Balsam Range), many bluegrass favorites, and gospel too, all done in the traditional style.

“Carolina Blue is a complete band. They have all the right elements that a great band needs. Great singing, great musicianship, and great original songs. I've been a fan for several years now. Glad to call them my friends.” - Tim Surret, Bass player with Balsam Range

Available recordings are Bobby Powell & Tim Jones "Nothing So Blue" (2007 produced by Steep Canyon Ranger Woody Platt and featuring Platt, Graham Sharp, Mike Guggino, Shannon Whitworth, and Roy Chapman), "Carolina Blue Live at Renofest" (2011), self-produced "Goin' Home Today" (2016) which earned them their first song on the charts, and most recently released "Sounds of Kentucky Grass" (2017) which landed the band their first #1 album on the Roots Music Charts. Most currently “I Hear Bluegrass Calling Me” was released in January 2019.
