It's been just over a year since our hometown of Lyons, CO was hit by a historic 500-year flood, causing devastating destruction to our our local community and to the Planet Bluegrass Ranch. Hear the story of the rebirth of Planet Bluegrass 2.0 from PBS NewsHour, Westword, Denver Post, 9News, CBS4-Denver, 7News-Denver, and Boulder Weekly.
