SESAC Affiliates Shine at Americana Awards
SESAC affiliates were honored in a big way last night at the 2011 Americana Honors & Awards Show held at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. Mumford & Sons were the winners of the coveted New/Emerging Artist of the Year category spurred largely by the massive success of their Sigh No More album. Critically hailed band The Avett Brothers were victorious in the category of Duo/Group of the Year and performed a blistering set at the festivities. The awards were hosted by SESAC songwriter/artist Jim Lauderdale.
