Rising talent, S.G. Goodman, has secured the Emerging Act of the Year Award at the 22nd Annual Americana Honors & Awards.
"I'm pretty fortunate to have a lot of folks working beside me as if I'm making a million dollars when I'm not," Goodman shared. "I'd like to give a shout out to the folks that really believed in me when I was cutting grass back in Western Kentucky. They encouraged me to be myself because they were okay with that."
She added, "There are a lot of people in this room who have championed me, let me share the stage with them and encouraged me. I want to thank you for that. It truly takes a village."
The Kentucky native released her debut album, Old Time Feeling, in 2020, encompassing a mesmerizing blend of Americana, folk, country and rock influences. By June 2022, her sophomore record, Teeth Marks, included the standout track 'If You Were Someone I Loved.'
Lauded by Holler as "a voice for the South," Goodman has been making many appearances with fellow Kentuckian Tyler Childers in recent months. Childers notably recorded a version of her beloved single, 'Space and Time,' on his recent release, Rustin' in the Rain.
2023 has seen Goodman across several festival bills, as well as a handful of her own headlining dates.
Among the other bright newcomers vying for the Emerging Act title were Adeem the Artist, William Prince, Thee Sacred Souls and Sunny War.
