After a three-year hiatus, the Ameripolitan Weekender & Awards are back with a twang!

The Roots celebration combines a festival and awards show into one all-encompassing spectacle, and serves as a showcase of all the most exciting and boundary-pushing songs, albums and acts that have lit up the genre over the course of the year.

Set to perform at this year's event are a number of high-profile artists, including the alt-country rising star, Sierra Ferrell. Joining her will be Johnny Rodriguez, Willi Carlisle, Emily Nenni and more.

The nominees for the 2023 Ameripolitan Awards have been confirmed, with the accolades uniquely scattered across the sub-genres of ‘Outlaw’, ‘Rockabilly’ and ‘Western Swing’.

The organisers add the qualification that “‘Ameripolitan’ is a word that represents the different heritage of roots music that inform the artists that you see here. Much of the music is hard to define to a single genre and as musicians, we tend to draw inspiration from many things to create a unique voice or sound”.

In a note to artists and fans alike, they go on to underline that, “We have these award categories to allow us to celebrate and acknowledge as many artists working under the umbrella of Ameripolitan music as we can.

The artists nominated in each category demonstrate the influence of that particular genre of music beautifully, even though they may play music that speaks across the board”.

Prizes are also on offer for the best DJ, Musician, Festival and Venue of the year.

The three-day live music extravaganza will culminate in the eagerly awaited awards show, which will take place on Sunday, February 19 at The Guesthouse at Graceland in the legendary musical hub of Memphis, Tennessee. It will be hosted by the Grammy and Emmy winning actress, Grey DeLisle, along with genre veteran, Big Sandy.
