10th Annual Americana Association Honors and Awards Show Get National TV Coverage.
The 10th Annual Americana Association Honors and Awards Show (whew! that’s a mouthful!) will be airing live Thursday, October 13th from the Ryman in Nashville on Nashville Public Television which reaches the Middle Tennessee viewing area. Additionally this year however, an edited version of the live show will be televised on Wednesday, October 19th on Austin City Limits which airs on PBS as “ACL Presents: Americana Music Fesstival 2011” (you can check local listings for times). Understandably, the AMA is excited to have the opportunity to receive national coverage this time around.
“It was time to bring the Americana Honors to another level. We could not have better partners in Nashville Public Television President and CEO Beth Curley for our Middle Tennessee premiere and Austin City Limits Executive Producer Terry Lickona to take this to a national audience.” -Jed Hilly Executive Director of the Americana Music Association
The show is one part of the Americana Music Festival and Conference presented this year by Nissan that will take place October 12th through 15th in Nashville.
In related news, “Americana” is now officially recognized as a word by Merriam-Webster! So, the AMA has lots of reasons to be excited this year!
