    Americana Music Honors & Awards to Air on AXS TV, Featuring Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Dr. John

    The 2013 Americana Music Honors & Awards ceremony, at which Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell took home the Duo of the Year and Album of the Year awards for their album Old Yellow Moon at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville last September, will be broadcast in full on AXS TV this Sunday, March 9, at 8 PM ET. Dr. John was also presented the Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, and Ry Cooder presented an award. Watch a preview of the show below.

    "We might very well not be here, as a genre and as an association, were it not for Emmy and Rodney," Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association, said at the event. "That we are celebrating them tonight not for the work they did 35 years ago, but for the work they did this year, on the same show that we're awarding another duo that is only on its first album, speaks volumes about where we're headed. What an amazing night."

    During the show, which was hosted by Jim Lauderdale with Buddy Miller leading the All-Star Band, Harris and Crowell performed Kris Kristofferson's "Chase the Feeling," as featured on the new album, and later led an all-star finale performance of the Crowell co-penned 1978 Harris hit "Leaving Louisiana in Broad Daylight." Dr. John, after receiving his Lifetime Achievement Award from Auerbach, took to the piano to perform his classic tune "I Walk on Gilded Splinters." Ry Cooder was also in attendance, presenting the Lifetime Achievement for Executive award to Chris Strachwitz, producer and founder of roots-music label Arhoolie Records. Ken Burns presented the President's Award posthumously to Hank Williams.

    The program was originally broadcast live on AXS TV, and a one hour musical highlights special aired on PBS's Austin City Limits in November. The new AXS TV special will feature all 17 performances from the critically acclaimed event as well as the artists' speeches.
