Americana awards

9 Jun, 2014

The Avett Brothers win two awards at the Americana Music Association ceremony in Nashville: Duo/Group of the Year and New/Emerging Artist of the Year. Executive Director of the Association, Jed Hilly, explains to Bloomberg Radio what Americana music is:

Americana is contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw.
