    Americana Music Association

    Congratulations to Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, who took home the Duo/Group of the Year Award for their 2015 album The Traveling Kind at the Americana Music Association Honors & Awards ceremony last night. The event took place at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, where Harris and Crowell also performed the album track "Bring It on Home to Memphis." The longtime friends had previously won the same award for their debut duo album, Old Yellow Moon, at the 2013 ceremony pictured above.

    Other winners last night include Sara Watkins, who was named Instrumentalist of the Year (picked up on her behalf by her brother and Nickel Creek bandmate Sean Watkins); Shawn Colvin, who received the Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award from Bonnie Raitt and performed the song "Diamond in the Rough"; Billy Bragg, this year's recipient of the Spirit of Americana Free Speech Award; and Woody Guthrie, the posthumous recipient of this year's President's Award.

    The Americana Honors & Awards ceremony was shown live on NPR.org last night. The PBS series Austin City Limits will broadcast a special featuring performance highlights from the event on November 19.

    In conjunction with The Criterion Collection’s special-edition DVD and Blu-ray release of David Byrne’s 1986 film True Stories, Nonesuch and Todomundo Records release a comprehensive soundtrack, collected for the first time in one package and in film sequence: True Stories, A Film by David Byrne: The Complete Soundtrack is due on vinyl LP, CD, and digital formats on November 23, 2018. Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an exclusive, limited-edition 12” print of a production photo taken by Byrne. "I always imagined that the music written for True Stories should be heard as it is in the film," says Byrne. "It makes the most sense this way. Me singing the song that was written for John Goodman’s character, Louis Fine, always felt weird to me. It was written for that character, not for me.”
