The Americana Music Association announced that they will host a new event at this year’s Americana Music Festival, a concert featuring Loretta Lynn, Steve Earle and Gillian Welch. The one-day “mini festival” will take place on Saturday, September 19 at Nashville’s new Ascend Amphitheater. Other performers include Tift Merritt, Eric Heywood, Nikki Lane, Emmy Rose Russell and more.
“We’re proud of the success of our boutique festival and conference, but this event at the Ascend Amphitheater is really for the entire community, not just the folks in the industry attending our business conference” Americana Executive Director Jed Hilly said in a press release. “It’s a celebration of the great city of Nashville and who better to highlight such an event than Miss Loretta Lynn.”
Tickets go on sale July 31 via Ticketmaster. While a conference badge is not required to attend the Ascend Amphitheater event, conference registrants will be offered discounted rates on tickets.
