LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The Del McCoury Band took home three International Bluegrass Music Awards on Thursday, including best entertainer in bluegrass music and a first-time win for song of the year.

It was the sixth entertainer of the year award for McCoury and his band.

McCoury and his band won song of the year for their cover of the Richard Thompson-penned ``1952 Vincent Black Lightning.''

``It's a song I really like to do, it paints a picture,'' said McCoury, whose band member Mike Bub took home an award for bass player.
