    Emerging Artists: The Alabama Shakes

    Album of the Year: "This One's For Him: A Tribute to Guy Clark."

    This is the Americana Music Association. It was set up, basically, to represent artists, producers and songwriters who don't get recognition on Mainstream radio. It sponsors what it considers "American Roots Music" - mainly Alternative Country, with some Roots Rock, Southern Gospel, Blues. It has its own Award Show every year at the Ryman.

    The airplay chart it sponsors shows you the range of artists it covers

    Th Civil Wars were an opening act for Taylor Swift, that's how they became popular, it may be a rare crossover but it's understandable

    I'm not sure they ever open for Taylor. They opened for Adele. They did work w/ Taylor on the songs for the Hunger Games movie. I bet they will at least get nominated for oscar award. Their album had critical acclaim way before doing anything w/ Taylor.
