Bill Monroe (September 13, 1911 – September 9, 1996) developed the style of country music known as bluegrass, which takes its name from his band, the "Blue Grass Boys," named for his home state of Kentucky. Monroe's performing career spanned 60 years as a singer, instrumentalist, composer and bandleader. He is often referred to as "the father of bluegrass." Born in Rosine, Kentucky, his career began in the 1930s when he and his older brother Charlie began performing as a duet, the Monroe Brothers. In 1939, after the brothers parted ways, Monroe formed the first edition of the Blue Grass Boys, and the same year became a regular on the Grand Ole Opry. As a mandolin player, Monroe brought a virtuosity previously unknown in country music to his instrument. In 1945 he hired Earl Scruggs, who similarly elevated the role of the banjo. This version of the Blue Grass Boys, which also included singer/guitarist Lester Flatt, Chubby Wise on fiddle, and Cedric Rainwater on bass, made the first recordings that featured all the elements that later came to be known as bluegrass music. More than 150 musicians played in the Blue Grass Boys over the years. Many later became stars in their own right, including Mac Wiseman, Sonny Osborne, Jimmy Martin, Don Reno, David "Stringbean" Akeman, Del McCoury, Vassar Clements, Peter Rowan, and Randall Franks. Bill Monroe was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1971, the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Honor as an inaugural inductee in 1991, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as an "early influence") in 1997. He is the only performer honored in all three. His well-known song Blue Moon of Kentucky has been covered by both rock and roll and bluegrass artists.
