“All of these artists have transformed the way we listen and experience music and have helped to build a perennial foundation for Americana music to prosper as an art form today,” said Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. “Our community looks forward to welcoming them with open arms on our biggest night of the year in September.”

In addition to these top Lifetime Achievement Awards, the association also honors distinguished members of the music community with six member-voted annual awards.
