The Americana Music Association has announced the nominees for their 15th Annual Honors and Awards Show.
The awards with the shortest category list, just six, did it up big this year, with their nomination announcement in Washington to take advantage of the musicFirst Coalition's special day to rally legislators behind the Fair Play Fair Pay Act. Hosted by the Milk Carton Kids, the evening also included performances by Lucinda Williams, Margo Price and Sierra Hull & Ethan Jodziewicz.
Jason Isbell came out on top with three nominations for Album, Artist and Song of the Year. Those with two nominations include Lucinda Williams (Album, Artist), Chris Stapleton (Album, Artist) and Margo Price (Emerging Artist, Song).
The awards will be presented on September 21 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
