The roots music-loving folks from the Americana Music Association have just unveiled the list of nominees for the 2014 Americana Honors & Awards, presented by Nissan, which will take place Sept. 17 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. This time around, it’s a three-way tie for the lead between Jason Isbell, Robert Ellis and Rosanne Cash, who each earned three nods. Fellow On the Edge favorites like Hurray for the Riff Raff, Sarah Jarosz and Sturgill Simpson also picked up nominations.
The Honors & Awards, which will again be hosted by Jim Lauderdale and feature the all-star house band led by Buddy Miller, is the central event of the Americana Music Festival, which runs Sept. 17–21 in Nashville.
