scheduled ceremony date.

Every year, the Americana Music Association honors distinguished members
of the music community with six member-voted annual awards. Described
by Emmylou Harris as “the shining star of Nashville and music
everywhere,” the Americana Honors & Awards has been broadcast in
years past on CMT, Austin City Limits via PBS, AXS TV and via SiriusXM
Radio, BBC2, WMOT, WRLT, WSM, Voice of America and — with
the awards show being the most-streamed music event on for
four consecutive years.

For almost two decades, the prestigious ceremony has celebrated
pioneering mainstays and trailblazing newcomers, while featuring
unforgettable moments in musical history including Johnny Cash &
June Carter Cash’s last live performance together, as well as offering
show-stopping appearances by k.d. lang, Van Morrison, Mavis Staples, Bob
Weir, Buddy Guy, George Strait, Don Henley, Bonnie Raitt, Gregg Allman,
The Avett Brothers, The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes,
Solomon Burke, Rosanne Cash, the late Dr. John with Dan Auerbach, Irma
Thomas, Levon Helm, Robert Plant and many more.

The Americana Honors & Awards usually serves as the centerpiece of
AMERICANAFEST week. Due to COVID-19, in lieu of the association hosting
its annual music festival and conference this fall, the recently
announced Americana Music Association Foundation (AMAF) will be presenting its first initiative with details to be revealed in the coming days.

Next year’s AMERICANAFEST dates have been set for Sept. 21-26, 2021.
