Az 1920-as, -30-as években a Monroe Brothers duó volt a legismertebb. Duetteket énekeltek, Charlie gitározott, Bill mandolinozott. Amikor a zenekar 1938-ban feloszlott, a testvérek saját zenekart alapítottak. Bill Kentuckyban született, mely a „Kékfű állam” (Bluegrass State), ezért zenekarát „Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys” névre keresztelte. A csapat hangzása a country zene új műfaját teremtette meg.
