ACL Presents: Americana Music Festival

Nashville, TN, November 3, 2011: Robert Plant, Emmylou Harris, Gregg Allman, Alison Krauss, The Avett Brothers and the Civil Wars are just a few of the artists to be showcased during ACL Presents: Americana Music Festival. The program will air November 19th on PBS stations(check local listings). Filmed live at the Ryman Auditorium October 13, 2011, during the sold out Americana Music Association's Honors and Award Show presented by Nissan, viewers will be treated to an hour long special featuring performances from the genres' established and rising stars.

Hosted by Jim Lauderdale, with an all-star house band led by Americana favorite Buddy Miller, the show runs the Americana gamet from the etheral opening of "I'll Fly Away" a tribute to the O' Brother Where Art Thou? soundtrack, featuring Emmylou Harris and Alison Krauss to the uplifting finale spotlighting the legendary Gregg Allman. In between are performances from Jim Lauderdale, Robert Plant and The Band of Joy, Elizabeth Cook, Justin Townes Earle, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Amos Lee, and many more.

"It was time to bring the Americana Honors to another level," said Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. We could not have had better partners than Nashville Public Television (Channel 8) President and CEO Beth Curley for our Middle Tennessee premiere and Austin City Limits Executive Producer Terry Lickona to take this to a national audience."

The program, described by Emmylou Harris as "the shining star of Nashville and music everywhere," was filmed by High Five Entertainment and co-produced by its President Martin Fischer along with Lickona.

A song, yes -- but also (I hope) the Lifetime Achievement (Performer) Award presentation (by Keb' Mo') and acceptance (by GA.)

By the way, it was Gregg who rightfully (and righteously) closed the show, also really enjoyed Justin Townes Earle, though I had never heard him or heard of him before..........Peace..........joe
