It’s been almost a month since we lost the the Queen of Country Music, Loretta Lynn, and last night the stars showed up to the Grand Ole Opry to celebrate her life in a big way. Hosted by NBC’s “Today Show” co-host and close family friend Jenna Bush Hager, the public celebration featured tribute performances from Alan Jackson, Brandi Carlile, Darius Rucker, George Strait, The Highwomen’s Carlile, Amanda Shires + Natalie Hemby with Brittany Spencer, Jack White, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Margo Price, Emmy Russell + Lukas Nelson, Tanya Tucker and Wynonna with Gaither Vocal Band + Larry Strickland.

On-stage guests who appeared to share heartfelt messages included Barbara Mandrell, Darius Rucker, Faith Hill, Hoda Kotb, Martina McBride, Sheryl Crow and Tim McGraw, plus special messages from Lynn’s closest friends and fans: Dolly Parton, Kacey Musgraves, Marty Stuart, Miranda Lambert, Reba, Sissy Spacek and Taylor Swift.

Alan Jackson expressed his gratitude to the Lynn family for allowing him to sing “Where Her Heart Has Always Been,” (watch above) the song he wrote for his mother when she passed away, in memory of Loretta. He shared that Loretta often reminded him of his mother: “Both were outgoing, sweet and genuine and would tell you exactly what was on their minds.”

Throughout the evening, some of Lynn’s closest friends and fans delivered heartfelt speeches and shared personal memories, including Sissy Spacek, who recalled being “thunderstruck” upon first meeting Loretta; Dolly Parton shared that “Loretta was the best friend anybody could ever have.” Taylor Swift praised Lynn for being an example for all songwriters, particularly females with her ‘truthful, fearless honesty’ in her writing.

Jack White’s surprise appearance and powerful live performance of “Van Lear Rose,” the title track of his and Loretta’s Grammy-winning album, was one of the highlights of the night. Introduced by Margo Price, fans were also treated to a rarely seen performance from Third Man Records Vault Package #24 featuring White and Lynn performing “Whispering Sea,” a favorite of White’s and one of the first songs Loretta ever wrote.

Check out the gallery of photos shot by Nashville.com’s talented friend and photographer Curtis Hilbun.

In loving memory of the life and legacy of Loretta Lynn, The Loretta Lynn Foundation exists to establish, preserve, and promote public awareness of the historical and cultural contributions of Loretta Lynn and the cultural contributions of country music as a genre and to establish, preserve, and maintain an educational and recreational facility for the general public through which to give to and serve others.

SiriusXM announced today that Eric Church will launch his own exclusive SiriusXM music channel, Eric Church Outsiders Radio, on Friday, November 4.

Eric Church Outsiders Radio will showcase music from Church’s career, including his catalog of nearly two decades that has earned him seven ACM Awards, four CMA Awards (including 2020 Entertainer of the Year) and 10 GRAMMY nominations. Curated by Church himself, the channel will be a journey through his musical experiences featuring collaborations and recordings with friends along with behind the scenes stories. Listeners will also hear songs that inspire Church as a fan of music, from rock to country and beyond by artists including George Strait, Bob Seger, Ashley McBryde, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Aretha Franklin, Kenny Chesney, Bruce Springsteen, Brandi Carlile and more.

“We’re trying to be thoughtful about how we play the music and why the music matters,” shares Church on the curation of his new channel for SiriusXM. “This is about something that you actually go, oh, that’s cool. That, I haven’t heard that. So, chasing that pathway is what gives me excitement about what we’re trying to do here with Outsiders Radio.”

Eric Church Outsiders Radio will launch on Friday, November 4 on the SXM App. The SXM App is available to subscribers on mobile devices and a wide variety of connected platforms in the home including smart speakers, smart TVs and streaming media players. Streaming access is included with all of SiriusXM’s audio trials and most popular plans. Additionally, the channel will also be available to subscribers nationwide in the car on SiriusXM channel 61 from November 4 through November 6.

Eric Church Outsiders Radio list of original programming includes:
Best Of Outsiders Radio: archival episodes of Church’s monthly show aired on The Highway, Outsiders Radio.
LIVE, From The Pit: a monthly full concert performance from a past Church show. The featured concert broadcast for November will be from the Green Bay stop of the 2022 Gather Again Tour.
A Song To Sing: a one hour monthly specialty show hosted by a songwriter who has had a hand in penning Church’s numerous hits, launching with Jeff Hyde, whose songwriting credits include Church’s “Springsteen.”
Insiders Hours: monthly guest DJ shows with friends, fans and collaborators launching with Lainey Wilson, the most nominated artist at the upcoming 2022 CMA Awards and a cast member on Season 5 of hit show “Yellowstone” premiering next month.

The exclusive channel is the latest in a longstanding relationship between SiriusXM and Church, who originally launched his exclusive monthly show, Outsiders Radio, on SiriusXM’s The Highway in February 2015. Outsiders Radio explored the country music singer/songwriter’s personal music influences with Church playing his current favorites as well as exclusive, never before heard music from his own archives.

The Americana Music Association revealed the winners of the 21st Annual Americana Honors & Awards at the Ryman Auditorium last night. An eclectic group of musical innovators garnered coveted awards, including Billy Strings (Artist of the Year), Allison Russell (Album of the Year), Brandi Carlile (Song of the Year), The War and Treaty (Duo/Group of the Year), Sierra Ferrell (Emerging Act of the Year) and Larissa Maestro (Instrumentalist of the Year).

Guitar picking phenom Billy Strings, who released Renewal (his third album) last year, was crowned Americana’s Artist of the Year. Dobro and steel guitar virtuoso Jerry Douglas presented and accepted the award on behalf of Strings, who is performing on tour this week in New England.

Triple nominee Allison Russell earned the Album of the Year Award for her critically acclaimed record Outside Child, produced by Dan Knobler. She accepted the award from respected music critic and NPR writer Ann Powers.

Allison Moorer and Hayes Carll awarded two-time Artist of the Year Brandi Carlile for the Song of the Year with “Right On Time,” written by Carlile, Dave Cobb, Phil Hanseroth and Tim Hanseroth.

The War and Treaty (Michael and Tanya Trotter) won Duo/Group of the Year after winning Americana Emerging Act of the Year in 2019. The celebrated duo accepted their trophy from the Brooklyn band Lucius and further cemented their rising career trajectory.

On the heels of her critically acclaimed new album Long Time Coming, Sierra Ferrell was also honored by the Americana music community and received this year’s Emerging Act of the Year Award.

Multi-instrumentalist Larissa Maestro took home the Instrumentalist of the Year Award, as Molly Tuttle recognized the Berklee College of Music grad. Maestro has performed and/or recorded with many high caliber artists and musicians, including Allison Russell, Mickey Guyton, Eminem, Ms. Lauryn Hill, H.E.R., Michael Bublé, Margo Price, and Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings.

Highlights from the evening include Brandi Carlile and Allison Russell delivering a soul-stirring rendition of “You’re Not Alone,” as well as the iconic McCrary Sisters honoring their late sister Deborah (who passed away in June) with a chills-inducing performance of “Amazing Grace.”

Americana stalwart and reigning All-Star Band musical director Buddy Miller was surprised by Robert Plant, who presented Miller with The Lifetime Achievement Award, which was previously unannounced. Miller graced the audience with his classic “Wide River To Cross.”

The evening also included tributes to three albums celebrating their 50th anniversary: Milk Carton Kids tribute to Jackson Browne’s self-titled debut Jackson Browne, Phosphorescent tribute to Neil Young’s Harvest, and Lyle Lovett (with Bill Payne of Little Feat) tribute to Little Feat’s Sailin’ Shoes.

Throughout the night, attendees were treated to additional performances by the Fairfield Four, Indigo Girls, Lucinda Williams, Adia Victoria, James McCurtry, Lukas Nelson, Morgan Wade, Neal Francis, The War and Treaty, and Sierra Ferrell.

Previously announced Lifetime Achievement honors were accepted by the Fairfield Four (Legacy of Americana Award, co-presented with the National Museum of African American Music [NMAAM]), presented by NMAAM’s Katie Rainge-Briggs and award-winning producer Shannon Sanders; Chris Isaak (Performance), presented by Lyle Lovett; the late Don Williams (President’s Award), presented and accepted on behalf of the Williams’ family by producer Garth Fundis; Al Bell (Executive), presented by music executive and Chairman of the Black American Music Association Michael Mauldin; and the Indigo Girls (Spirit of Americana Award, co-presented with the First Amendment Center), presented by Brandi Carlile and First Amendment Center’s John Seigenthaler.

Praised by Emmylou Harris as “the shining star of Nashville and music everywhere,” the show came to a memorable close with a sing-along of “I’ll Take You There” (written by Lifetime Achievement Honoree Al Bell and made famous by The Staple Singers).

“Every year, the musicians from this community come together to create this wonderful show. I say it time and again, ‘I don’t know how we’re going to top this,’ yet these artists find a way,” said Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. “It was an emotional show where love and loss were buoyed by friendship and community. It is humbling to have a small part in it.”

With Miller once again at the helm, the All-Star Band featured Brady Blade, Don Was, Jen Gunderman, Jim Hoke, Larry Campbell, Lorenzo Molina, Rob Burger and The McCrary Sisters.

The Americana Music Association celebrated distinguished members of its community tonight and revealed the winners of the 20th Annual Americana Honors & Awards at the historic Ryman Auditorium. A generation-bridging group of musical innovators garnered coveted awards, including Brandi Carlile (Artist of the Year), Sturgill Simpson (Album of the Year), the late John Prine (Song of the Year), Black Pumas (Duo/Group of the Year), Charley Crockett (Emerging Act of the Year) and Kristin Weber (Instrumentalist of the Year).

Following yet another milestone year with her #1 New York Times Bestselling memoir Broken Horses, Carlile took home her second Americana trophy for Artist of the Year. The award was presented to Carlile by “CBS This Morning” host Anthony Mason.

Simpson, celebrating a well-received “mixtape for the fans” as he called it, has earned the Album of the Year Award for his first bluegrass project, Cuttin’ Grass Vol. 1 – The Butcher Shoppe Sessions. The award was accepted on Simpson’s behalf by Shooter Jennings as he was not able to attend.

2003 Americana Lifetime Achievement (Songwriting) honoree Prine secured Song of the Year with “I Remember Everything,” written by Pat McLaughlin and Prine, which is the last original song he recorded. This evening, the award was presented by Joe Henry and Aoife O’Donovan to Fiona Prine, president of Oh Boy Records and wife of the songwriting icon.

Black Pumas won Duo/Group of the Year after being crowned Americana Emerging Act of the Year in 2020, further cementing their rising career trajectory with multiple GRAMMY® nods, plus a slate of national performances including this year’s Presidential Inauguration and stops at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden. Kiefer Sutherland accepted the award on behalf of Black Pumas as they were not able to attend.

Also honored by the Americana music community was Crockett who received this year’s Emerging Act of the Year Award, which comes right on the heels of his critically acclaimed new album, “Music City USA,” and follows a triumphant journey that’s led him from busking on New York streets to cultivating a loyal following with almost 50 million video views online. The award was presented to Crockett by Rodney Crowell.

Weber, a 14-year veteran of worldwide touring and recording as a fiddler, has been recognized with the Instrumentalist of the Year Award. In addition to sharing the stage with Kacey Musgraves, Dolly Parton and more, she’s written string arrangements and recorded on numerous records since moving to Nashville in 2008 after graduating with a degree in music from Berklee College of Music. The award was presented to Weber by Sarah Jarosz.

For two decades now, the Americana Honors & Awards program has provided a unique platform for commemorating the best and brightest musicians in the Americana music scene while showcasing once-in-a-lifetime performances. This year, the duties of hosting were shared among the artists involved in the show. The ceremony began with heartwarming opening remarks from Carlile and it was immediately clear that the close-knit roots community was delighted to come together again after an in-person hiatus in 2020.

Highlights from the evening include a soul-stirring rendition of “I Believe” by the Fisk Jubilee Singers, as well as “Queen of Memphis Soul” Carla Thomas taking the stage for a feel-good performance of her Stax Records staple, “B-A-B-Y.” One of many cultural roots influences in Americana music were showcased during a sweeping Spanish performance of “La Sitiera,” delivered by The Mavericks who were backed by a stunning string quartet. Later on, Carlile, Margo Price and Amanda Shires came together to pay tribute to the great Prine with a heartfelt take on “I Remember Everything.” Carlile then returned to the stage for a soaring performance of her latest single, “Right On Time.”

Throughout the night, attendees were treated to additional performances by Crockett, Steve Earle, Henry with O’Donovan, The Highwomen (Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris, Shires) with Yola, Jason Isbell with Shires, Jarosz, Valerie June with Thomas, Amythyst Kiah, Buddy Miller, Keb’ Mo’, Price, Allison Russell and Aaron Lee Tasjan.

Previously announced Lifetime Achievement honors were accepted by the Fisk Jubilee Singers (Legacy of Americana Award, co-presented with the National Museum of African American Music [NMAAM]), presented by NMAAM President and CEO H. Beecher Hicks III and award-winning producer Shannon Sanders; The Mavericks (Trailblazer), presented by Americana Award-winning producer Tony Brown; Keb’ Mo’ (Performance), presented by Old Crow Medicine Show’s Ketch Secor; Trina Shoemaker (Producer/Engineer), presented by Sheryl Crow; and Carla Thomas (Inspiration), presented by Valerie June.

Praised by Emmylou Harris as “the shining star of Nashville and music everywhere,” the show came to a memorable close with Harris and Crowell during an entrancing rendition of the Everly Brothers’ “Let It Be Me” which transitioned into “Bye Bye Love,” a touching, harmony-laced salute to the late Don Everly.

“Given today’s uncertain times, there is no greater assurance that the power of music brings people together to uplift their spirits when they need it the most,” said Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. “I’m beyond proud of our artists and community for reminding me again why this is my favorite night of the year, every year.”

Americana stalwart Miller returned as reigning musical director with an All-Star Band featuring Don Was, Jen Gunderman, Jim Hoke, David Mansfield, Jerry Pentecost, Tasjan and the incredible McCrary Sisters backing many of the night’s performers.
