The Americana Music Association (their version, not ours with the “UK” bit tagged on) are having their Honours & Awards Nomination Announcement Ceremony tonight at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Ford Theater, hosted by the Milk Carton Kids with special guests to be announced. Fortunately for us and the environment, you don’t have to be there in person to hear them since there’s a live stream being broadcast from 8pm UK time which you can catch here. And in the meantime why not watch the Mikybar Kids’ harmony rich NPR tiny desk concert below.
