Brandi Carlile, Allison Russell + Yola Earn 3 Americana Music Award Nominations Apiece


Brandi Carlile, Allison Russell and Yola received three nominations apiece --each in the Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Artist of the Year categories-- for the 2022 Americana Honors & Awards.

Nominees were revealed on Monday (May 16) at the National Museum of African American Music in Nashville. The Americana Honors & Awards will be held on Wed., Sept. 17 at the Ryman Auditorium. It's among the special events slated for AmericanaFest 2022: an annual gathering that showcases a variety of music, from country beyond the mainstream to bluegrass, blues, folk and rootsy rock 'n' roll.

Expect more announcements, from performers and presenters to recipients of the Americana Music Association's lifetime achievement awards, between now and mid-September.
