The Avett Brothers Nominated for Americana Music Association Duo/Group of the Year
Happy to see The Avett Brothers nominated again for the Americana Music Association Duo/Group of the year again. They won this award last year and it would be great to see them take it home two years in a row. They are in good company with Robert Plant, The Civil Wars and Mumford & Sons. Maybe we will see if the Americana Music Association prefers Avetts or Mumford better. I love them both, but know my preference is obviously The Avett Brothers due to their extensive body of work and diversity of music, but again this is www.theavettbrothersfans.com.
Jessica Lea Mayfield, an Avett fav and multiple time opening act for The Avett Brothers, is nominated for New/Emerging Artist of the Year, which The Avett Brothers won in 2007. The nomination is fantastic for her, but not one I think she is likely to win. She has some steep competition from Mumford & Sons, The Civil Wars and The Secret Sisters. The Decemberists, Lucinda Williams and Justin Townes Earle also have nominations for Album of the Year.
Wouldn’t it be great a great birthday present if The Avett Brothers won Duo of the Year and Mumford & Sons won New/Emerging Artist?! I guess we will have to wait until October 13th to find out.
