    Emmylou Harris, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Dr. John, Dan Auerbach Perform on PBS Programs Showcasing Americana Music

    Emmylou Harris will be a familiar face and voice on PBS in the coming days, as she is among the artists featured on two programs showcasing Americana music airing on public television stations across the United States this weekend: Nashville 2.0, premiering Friday, November 22, at 9 PM EST, and Austin City Limits' special with highlights from the Americana Music Festival 2013, which airs Saturday night at 8 PM.

    Nashville 2.0 explores the vibrant Americana music scene, the roots-inspired music that draws inspiration from country, folk, bluegrass, R&B, blues, roots rock, bluegrass, gospel, rockabilly, honky-tonk, alternative rock, folk rock, and punk. The program features interviews with musicians, journalists, and music historians as well as exclusive performances from Harris, Carolina Chocolate Drops, and many more. For additional details, visit pbs.org.

    On Saturday, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, with whom she released the duo album Old Yellow Moon earlier this year, will be among the artists featured in ACL Presents: Americana Music Festival 2013, which captures performances recorded live at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville back in September. In fact, Harris and Crowell, who took home the Duo of the Year and Album of the Year awards, kick off the program with their performance of music from Old Yellow Moon.

    “We might very well not be here, as a genre and as an association, were it not for Emmy and Rodney,” said Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. “That we are celebrating them tonight not for the work they did 35 years ago, but for the work they did this year … speaks volumes about where we’re headed. What an amazing night.”

    Also on the program is a performance from Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dr. John with The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, who produced his 2012 Grammy-winning Nonesuch debut album, Locked Down. At the ceremony, Auerbach presented Dr. John, aka Mac Rebennack, with the Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance.

    The house band at the Americana Music Awards led by Buddy Miller included Don Was, Larry Campbell, Marco Giovino, John Deaderick, Jim Hoke, and the McCrary Sisters. For more on the program, visit acltv.com.
