Congratulations to singer/songwriters Margo Price and Charley Crockett for their multiple nominations for the 2023 Americana Music Awards. Most recently seen taping our current Season 49’s first show, Price received top honors of Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, and Song of the Year. Crockett, who debuted on the ACL stage in Season 47, garnered nominations in the same prestigious categories. For the past decade, ACL has partnered with the Americana Music Association to deliver an annual ACL Presents broadcast featuring performance highlights from the Americana Honors celebration.
We’d also like to extend a hearty “huzzah” to Price and Crockett’s fellow ACL alumni Bonnie Raitt, Billy Strings, Allison Russell, The War and Treaty, Angel Olsen, Nickel Creek, Tyler Childers, and SistaStrings (who backed both Brandi Carlile and Allison Russell in Season 48) for their well-earned nominations. Rolling Stone helpfully rounded up all the noms here.
The AMA winners will be announced on Sept. 20 during the 22nd Annual Americana Honors & Awards at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN.
