Billy Strings, Zach Bryan, Brandi Carlile, Tyler Childers, Angel Olsen, Sierra Ferrell, Nickel Creek, the War and Covenant and Bonnie Raitt.

Some of the most prominent names in Americana, who have dominated the nominations in past years, such as Jason Isbell, were among the projects during the voting period. But the association is also known for wanting to promote fresh blood, which has resulted in artists not having a high mainstream media profile such as Hermanos Gutiérrez, 49 Winchester, Caamp and Plains appearing in competitive categories.

Four of 2022’s winners are on this year’s list of nominees, despite being among albums in this eligibility cycle. Russell, who won the album of the year with his solo debut in 2022, Strings, who chose the artist of the year in the last tour, and Ferrell, who won the emerging artist award last year, are all candidates to be the artist of the year this time. And Carlile, the winner of song of the year in 2022, is back with another nomination in the same category this year, appearing in a song written and directed by Russell.

Price and Crockett’s high profile in the nominations reflects that both had a particularly good year; The chart-topping songs and albums are #1 on Americana radio stations and programs, reflecting considerable media praise.

For Price, these are his first Americana Honors nominations since 2018, when he was nominated for album and artist of the year. In addition to releasing her fourth album “Strays” this year, Price has also garnered accolades for publishing her memoir “Maybe We’ll Make It,” as well as garnering some of the attention she’s gotten since her debut as a star. Crockett is still on the rise in establishing his reputation; The Texan singer’s win in the emerging artist category last year marked her first and only nomination ever.

While there’s rarely much crossover between the Americana Association nominations and the Grammys (except in the typical case where Carlile is involved), Raitt is nominated for song of the year here for “Just Like That” months after he became the surprise winner at the Grammys. . for the same song in the same category.

The award ceremony will be held on September 9. As the influential kick-off event of AmericanaFest, which will be held on September 1 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on September 20, 2023. 19-23 all over the city.
