CMT Edge: 10 Picks for Americana Music Conference

Published on September 10, 2012 by CMT News

The Americana Music Conference will bring hundreds of open-minded music fans to downtown Nashville this week, giving listeners
a chance to hear roots music from across the U.S. and around the world. And since the official showcases are open to the public,
fans can get in on the action. The music begins Wednesday night (Sept. 12) and runs through Saturday.

Here are 10 shows
worth a look:

Americana Honors and Awards
The excellent lineup always speaks for itself. This year’s roster
at the Ryman Auditorium offers Bonnie Raitt, Alabama
Shakes
, Justin Townes Earle and Jason
Isbell the 400 Unit
, among many more. Stick around for an all-star tribute to Levon
Helm
. Wednesday’s show is sold out.

Brandi Carlile, Star
Anna

These two Seattle-area songwriters will headline the Cannery Ballroom on Wednesday — and it’s lucky that the
space is so big, because these women can belt it out. Carlile’s new album Bear Creek is superb, and Star Anna first
attracted my attention with her video for “If Wishes Were Horses.”
