The Americana Music Association, in partnership with AEG Live/The Messina Group, announces a one-time-only “mini-festival” at the new Ascend Amphitheater on Saturday, September 19, in downtown Nashville during its 16th annual Americana Festival & Conference.
The one-day celebration of roots-inspired music will feature the legendary Loretta Lynn, Americana stalwart Steve Earle, revered acoustic duo Gillian Welch and special guests Tift Merritt, Eric Heywood, Nikki Lane and Emmy Rose Russell. The event will feature two stages, with more artists to be announced in the coming weeks.
Doors will open at 4 PM CT. Tickets are $25, $45 and $75 and will go on sale via Ticketmaster on Friday, July 31, at 10 AM CT.
The event will take place during the critically acclaimed Americana Music Festival & Conference, presented by Nissan, and is primarily driven to the greater Nashville community.
“We’re proud of the success of our boutique festival and conference, but this event at the Ascend Amphitheater is really for the entire community, not just the folks in the industry attending our business conference” said Americana Executive Director Jed Hilly. “It’s a celebration of the great city of Nashville and who better to highlight such an event than Miss Loretta Lynn.”
Lynn was honored by the Americana Music Association last Fall with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement for Songwriter award and wowed the crowd with her stunning rendition of “Coal Miners Daughter.”
