Sugar Hill Records released Nickel Creek: Reasons Why (The Very Best Of) on November 14, 2006. The collection juxtaposes songs from their three highly acclaimed albums, to weave a thread of continuity from the gentle, lilting beginnings of hits like "Lighthouse's Tale" to trailblazing instrumentals including "Smoothie Song" to full-on acoustic rock of "Helena" and back to "When You Come Back Down." There are also two live tracks - including a nine-minute version of "The Fox," a longtime fan favorite, and a DVD of their popular music videos.

Nickel Creek recently announced an indefinite hiatus to begin at the end of the 2007 touring season - "We've decided to take a break of indefinite length at the end of 2007 to preserve the environment we've sought so hard to create and to pursue other interests."

The band, who have been playing together since the youngest was 8 years old, have garnered legions of fans in wonder of their virtuosity -- and the hybrid of genres that concoct a truly unique sound. With their self-titled debut in 2000,Time Magazine named them "Music Innovators for the New Millennium," while their 2002 release, This Side, captured the Grammy for"Best Contemporary Folk Album.”

Nickel Creek released their third album Why Should The Fire Die? on August 9, 2005. The album debuted at Number One on the Independent Album chart and the Internet chart -- and was the #17 best-selling album in the country that week. The group has always toured relentlessly, and this year performed at such diverse festivals as Lollapalooza, Merlefest, Bonnaroo, and Telluride.

Chris Thile just released How To Grow A Woman From The Ground, a bluegrass album he recorded in New York. Siblings Sean and Sara Watkins continue their popular "Watkins Family Hour," at Largo in Los Angeles, as well as working on other projects.
