The 2016 Americana Awards show at the Ryman was a true tribute to the music of America. It honored those who have passed on, it honored those still here whose lifetime of music making made them a place among the honorees, and it recognized those rising stars continuing the tradition of making music, Americana Style. Bob Weir, Dwight Yoakam, The Nitty Gritty Dirtband, William Bell, Jason Isbell, Margo Price, George Strait, Jim Lauderdale, Shawn Colvin, Bonnie Raitt, Emmy Lou Harris, Buddy Miller, Steve Fishell and more contributed to the night's success.
