AMERICANA TEAMS UP WITH COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME

The Americana Music Association℠ and the Country Music Hall of Fame  and Museum will partner once again to offer one-of-a-kind programs
during the 18th Annual Americana Music Festival & Conference — AMERICANAFES — September 12-17.
“The mission of the Americana Music Association℠ is to advocate for the authentic voice of American roots music around the world,” said museum CEO Kyle Young. “Part of our own mission is to interpret this ever-changing art form. One of the ways we do that is through our educational programs. We are happy to partner once again with the association to further both our missions and offer what is sure to be an unforgettable week of music and conversation.”
“This year’s slate of Amercanafest programming at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum represents some of the best curation on the planet,” said Americana Music Association Executive Director, Jed Hilly.
“It’s a thrill to be working with Kyle Young and his team for the eleventh straight year to bring amazing, educational, historical and of course musical experiences that you will not find elsewhere. We are honored to partner to bring these wonderful programs to the community.”

Amercanafest activities at the museum begin Wednesday, September 13 in the Ford Theater with special performances and conversation from Don Bryant, Yola Carter, Raul Malo and Joan Osborne and presented by Ann Powers of NPR Music.
On Thursday, September 14, Mike Judge Presents: Tales from the Tour Bus, an animated half-hour show chronicling the stories of some of country music’s most eccentric characters, will premiere. The event will feature a screening of two episodes from the series and a conversation with co-creator/executive producer Mike Judge, followed by a live performance musical tribute to the acts featured in the series featuring Brandy Clark, Brent Cobb, Elizabeth Cook, Dori Freeman, Jack Ingram, Jim Lauderdale, Sam Outlaw, Teddy Thompson and more to be announced.
On Friday afternoon, sisters Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer will perform songs from their new album and talk with NPR Music’s Ann Powers about the recording, the creative process, and sharing music as siblings. Later that day, Devon Allman, Pony Bradshaw, Michael Lehman, Buddy Miller, Joan Osborne, and John Paul White will join Grammy Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman as they pay homage, through stories and music, in celebration of Gregg Allman’s final recording.
