He played a prominent role as fiddler on the 2004 Country Album of the Year, Livin', Lovin', Losin': The Songs Of The Louvin Brothers, garnering him his first Grammy. He also recorded fiddle for what became a Billboard Magazine #1 hit single, “Don’t Forget to Remember Me,"drawn from American Idol winner Carrie Underwood's Some Hearts (2005)--his first prominent participation in a multi-platinum seller.
