Epiphone will be sponsoring the Americana Music Association (AMA) Festival and Awards this year in Nashville, Tennessee.

The event, which runs from September 12 to 17, will also feature custom-painted Epiphone headstocks for the AMA Award trophies, which will be presented live at Ryman Auditorium on September 13.  

The artist lineup for 2017 includes Epiphone artists and fans Lillie Mae, Buddy Miller, and Jack Ingram, and  Epiphone artist nominees include Margo Price (“Artist of the Year”), Billy Bragg & Joe Henry, and Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives (with Chris Scruggs, “Group of the Year”). Van Morrison will also receive the AMA Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Americana Awards is now the premier showcase for artists who draw on American roots music,” said Jim Rosenberg, Epiphone president. “And Epiphone has been there from the beginning–from Jason & the Scorchers to Margo Price. We can’t wait!”
