    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."
