One of music's hottest commodities of 2023, Noah Kahan, made a special appearance at the 22nd Annual Americana Honors & Awards, joining The Milk Carton Kids for a tribute to the legendary Paul Simon.
The trio treated attendees in the Mother Church of Country Music, Nashville's historic Ryman auditorium, to their stripped-down rendition of Simon's beloved 'American Tune.'
With Kahan's silky smooth and irresistible vocals kicking off the track, it quickly turned into a cozy serenade in the Ryman house with a lone acoustic guitar playing in the background. Wrapping up the audience like a warm hug, the larger-than-life folk-leaning crooner made quite an entrance at his first ever Americana Honors & Awards.
When it came to the second verse, The Milk Carton Kids continued that same spell-binding energy as their pitch-perfect harmonies filled the air. As the song progressed, the whole affair graduated to a beautifully executed three-part harmony, with each of the three men lending their talents as the song hit its climax.
As one of the ultimate genre-benders of today, Kahan's appearance at the 2023 Americana Honors & Awards was one of the sweetest surprises of the night which featured plenty of other electrifying performances from 49 Winchester, The War and Treaty, Margo Price and more.
