    If anyone still has time for another award show...

    ...the AMA have theirs on Sept 18th.

    In some ways it's eerily similar to the CMA, that most of the Roots community finally gave up on twelve years ago. It has a broadly similar award structure, membership voting, and live performances interspersing the award announcements - with a host and guest presenters. But (hopefully) there's less evidence of internal vote manipulation by the industry movers and shakers, and more willingness to step outside the box in the artists and music they tend to feature.

    If anyone is interested in what's featured this year, it is being broadcast live on AXS (the cable channel which Ryan Seacrest and Creative Artists partly own). Sound broadcasts are also available on Public radio, Sirius Outlaw Country, & WSM (the Opry station). Austin City Limits will air an edited rerun a few days later (and I suspect the BBC will have extracts, as Bob Harris will be present at the show)

    As usual, Jim Lauderdale will be the host (OK. he's not Carrie - but you can't have everything, Lol). And as usual Buddy Miller will lead the stage band (fans of "Nashville" may know that Buddy is taking over from T-bone Burnett as musical director for the second series). Among the guest presenters this year will be Joy Williams of the Civil Wars. Among the performers will be the Old Crow Medicine Show, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, Buffalo Springfield members Stephen Stills and Richard Furay reuniting for a special performance, and Holly Williams performing a tribute to her grandfather.

    For anyone who's a bit unsure of this type of music, I'll post a couple of current examples, which are up for awards. First, our own "power couple" lol, Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison (who are relatives of Emily of the Dixie Chicks - Bruce wrote their "Travelling Soldier" hit). This is the lead track from their current Album of the Year nomination:

    And secondly, the video for the lead single by current new sensations, Shovels and Rope. I hope you enjoy the song! (don't be misled by the child actors who play the story line, though - the singers are actually an adult pair. The dog may be the real one who accompanies their act, and is named after TVZ.)

    As we've been discussing the varied and positive role being played by female artists in the genre, it's interesting to see that it was an all-woman band that won "Emerging Artist Of The Year". The band's name is Della Mae:

    I really enjoyed listening to them. I will have to look into more of their music. Thanks for sharing!
