The Americana Honors & Awards Show, the marquis event for the Americana Music Association, returns to the historically cool Ryman Auditorium on September 22, 2021. 

Each year the Americana Music Association honors distinguished members of the music community. Six member-voted awards and several Lifetime Achievement Awards are handed out while over 2000 artists, music-loving fans and entertainment industry executives look on. You can view the 2021 honorees and nominees here.

The Honors & Awards have featured many amazing moments over the years. Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash’s last live performance together was during the award show. Artists such as John Prine with Bonnie Raitt, Robert Plant & His Band of Joy, Dr. John with Dan Auerbach, Rosanne Cash, Stephen Stills and Joan Baez have brought our audiences to their feet.
