Americana Music Association Releases Full Bill for 15th Annual AmericanaFest

Cowboys & Indians Aug/Sept - Americana

The Americana Music Association has released the whole enchilada, the full list for their conference and festival. And all I can say is WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?!

I’m only one man, how can I make it to so many great performances, many of them happening AT THE SAME TIME!

I know, I know, roots-music blogger problems.

With more artists and more venues this year’s AmericanaFest is really stacking up to be the best yet.

AMA Executive Director Jed Hilly tells the Nashville Scene. “We couldn’t be more excited with this year’s lineup. We anticipate over 160 official showcases by the time September rolls around. … We’ve added 40 more artists than we had last year, and we are thrilled to add on five more venues to the festival.”

In addition to the already daunting list of performers I’m happy to see roots-duos Carolina Story and Grace and Tony, Austin’s David Ramirez and Shinyribs and, the excellent Zoe Muth, and Sturgill Simpson who’s come a long way since his AmericanaFest debut last year.

Pick up the Aug/Sept issue of Cowboys and Indians magazine (above) to read by article on AmericanaFest and the history of the movement.

Check out the Americanafest official 2014 Spotify playlist.

The 15th annual Americana Music Festival & Conference occurs September 17-21, 2014 in Nashville, Tenn. The 13th annual Americana Honors & Awards Show on Sept. 17 at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

I’ll see you at the hootenanny!
