    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.

    "Though the exact day is not known, it was fifteen years ago that Lake Street Dive became a band," says Rachael Price. "McDuck wrote our name on the chalkboard of a practice room and it was done. We didn’t know each other that well. We had zero idea of what kind of music we would play. We certainly didn’t know that fateful day marked the beginning of the longest platonic double date of my life. We have been through so much together ... Happy Fifteenth Bandiversary, y'all!"
