The nominees for the 22nd Annual Americana Honors & Awards have already been unveiled, with Margo Price and Charley Crockett leading the pack with three nominations each. They both received nods in the Artist, Song and Album of the year categories.
Following closely behind with two nominations out of the six possible categories is Allison Russell for Artist of the Year and Song of the Year ('You're Not Alone' with Brandi Carlile). At the 2022 edition of the awards, Russell took home the trophy for Album of the Year for her Outside Child record.
Elsewhere, Sierra Ferrell nabbed a nomination for Artist of the Year, marking a milestone moment for the rising singer-songwriter who last year was named the Emerging Act of the Year.
Also vying for Artist of the Year is reigning winner Billy Strings, while Zach Bryan ('Something in the Orange') and Bonnie Raitt ('Just Like That') also earned nods for Song of the Year.
Other notable standouts from this year's batch of nominees are Tyler Childers (Album of the Year, Can I Take My Hounds to Heaven?), as well as Holler favorites 49 Winchester and The War and Treaty, who earned spots in the Duo/Group of the Year category. This notches the second consecutive nomination in the category for the husband-and-wife team of The War and Treaty, who walked away with the honor last year.
The winners for the 22nd Annual Americana Honors & Awards will be announced on Sept. 20 during a special ceremony at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.
