SIRIUS TO BROADCAST LIVE FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BLUEGRASS MUSIC ASSOCIATION AWARDS

SIRIUS subscribers will also enjoy pre-show coverage from annual festival

NEW YORK - October 1, 2004 -
SIRIUS Satellite Radio is the official satellite radio provider for the 15th Annual IBMA awards in Louisville, Kentucky. This marks the second year in a row that SIRIUS has been involved as a sponsor, and the first time that it will broadcast the event.

The live broadcast, hosted by SIRIUS DJ Joey Black will air on SIRIUS Bluegrass channel 37 on Thursday, October 7 from 8:30 pm to 11 pm ET, with a pre-show from 8 pm to 8:30 pm ET. A re-broadcast can be heard on October 11 at 9 pm ET. Ricky Skaggs & The Kentucky Thunder, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, Alison Krauss & Union Station, The Del McCoury Band and many more will be performing, with bluegrass veterans Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski serving as the event's co-hosts.

To kick off Thursday night's awards, SIRIUS CEO Joseph P. Clayton will be onstage welcoming the expected audience of 2,500 attendees.

"SIRIUS is thrilled to be part of the IBMA awards," said Clayton, a Kentucky native. "As anyone who knows me will attest, I am the biggest bluegrass music fan there is - the very first button on my SIRIUS radio takes me to channel 37, our Bluegrass channel. You can be sure I will have a front row seat at the show."

SIRIUS Bluegrass Format Manager Terry Herd and weekday evening host Chris Jones are nominated in the same category for "Broadcaster of the Year." Terry Herd is a three-time recipient of this award, while Chris Jones is enjoying his first nomination.

Immediately following the IBMA awards, SIRIUS is sponsoring the Bluegrass Fan Fest, a trade show where artists from the show will perform and SIRIUS radios can be purchased. In addition, SIRIUS and the Nashville Music Classic Festival have partnered for a live SIRIUS broadcast that will bring listeners unbeatable music and fun-filled family entertainment. The festival takes place in Smiley Hollow, Tennessee on October 1 and 2.

I love Joe's passion for bluegrass. Good to see him so connected to his music.
