Where else can you see the Avett Brothers rise from the crowd, Robert Plant swing his mic stand as he grooves, Lucinda Williams rock out, and Gregg Allman sing "Sweet Melissa"? Only in Nashville. This is our 5th year working with the Americana Music Association and we felt so proud to sit in the sold-out Awards Show last night. They've had quite a year… even Merriam-Webster announced the inclusion of the musical definition of the word Americana to its Dictionary. Good stuff.
We've been to the awards the last few years and again, they did not disappoint. It was an evening of celebration and appreciation for those in the field. We leaned in, feet tapping, heads nodding, and were lost in the music inside the "mother church".
