((Dan Tyminski is used to the spotlight, as a solo bluegrass artist and a member of the group Alison Krauss & Union Station.
But it was his new role as a member of the Soggy Bottom Boys that brought him to the stage of the Grandin Theater Saturday night.

George Clooney may have top billing in the new Coen Brothers movie, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," but his singing voice belongs to Tyminski. [NAT SOUND OF MUSIC 01:53:43]

Set in 1930's Mississippi, the film is a comedy based loosely upon Homer's, "The Odyssey." It features a soundtrack of early country music, including songs that southwest Virginia's own Carter Family and Stanley Brothers originally recorded.

[IN Q=You know, I've just been blown away]

((DAN TYMINSKI: YOU KNOW I'VE JUST BEEN BLOWN AWAY. I FOUND OUT YESTERDAY IT WENT GOLD, WHICH I THINK IS OUTSTANDING THAT THIS TYPE OF MUSIC IS BEING ACCEPTED BY THE MASSES. I COULDN'T WISH IT ENOUGH YOU KNOW, IT'S GREAT.))
[RUNS= :15]
[OUT Q=you know it's great.]


The movie has found an eager audience at the Grandin... A special fundraiser Saturday night filled the main auditorium for the first time since Bill Murray appeared at an event ten years ago.
Tyminski says he enjoyed the movie... even if the sight of someone else lip-synching to his music seemed a little strange.
[SOT 10:25]
[IN Q=I'm just starting]

((DAN TYMINSKI: I'M JUST STARTING TO GET USED TO IT, BECAUSE I'VE SEEN IT ENOUGH NOW TO WHERE IT'S KIND OF SINKING IN. IT DOESN'T APPEAR SO WEIRD TO ME, BUT IT'S HARD TO SEE YOUR VOICE COME OUT OF SOMEONE ELSE, BUT FUN.))
[RUNS=:09]
[OUT Q=but fun.]


Tyminski's will soon head into the recording studio with Alison Krauss, but he says there's a possibility the Soggy Bottom Boys may reunite for a concert tour. [NAT SOUND OF MUSIC]

((Welcome to the brand new Sam Bass Gallery on Performance Drive in Concord, North Carolina. It's a stone's throw from turn two of the Lowe's Motor Speedway, and more importantly the home of world renowned motorsports artist Sam Bass. ((SAM BASS:)) Excuse Bass if he has to pinch himself these days, but when he decided to turn his passion into a profession some 20 years ago, he never imagined his artistry would coincide with the unparalleled growth of Winston Cup racing. ((SAM BASS:)) Bass, who graduated from VCU with a degree in fine arts, has produced more than 1000 originals and designed the paint schemes for hundreds of race cars. 12 of his "200 mile an hour" paintings will be in this year's Daytona 500 including Jeff Gordon's new car and all three of cars from Dale Earnhardt Inc. The Intimidator and the Illustrator are now great friends and business partners. ((SAM BASS:)) But while Bass is indebted to Dale, he'll always be partial to Bobby Allison and his late son Davey. The father and son are the subject of Bass's favorite piece of work. ((SAM BASS:)) Bass who is now 39 saw his first race when he was 7. And while he's an artist of unique proportions when it comes down to it, he's really just a racing fan. Mike Stevens News 7 Sports.))
