The Americana Music Association says it intentionally sought to add directors from music communities outside Nashville this year, to work alongside local board members. The professional non-profit trade organization’s mission is to promote awareness, provide a forum, and advocate for the creative and economic vitality of the Americana music genre. The Association produces events throughout the year including the annual Americana Music Festival and Conference.
