Americana Music Association
The Americana Music Association is a music trade organization whose mission is to advocate for the authentic voice of American Roots Music around the world. The Americana Music Association works behind the scenes to foster an environment for growth: building infrastructure, creating networking opportunities and establishing channels, which allow the music community to work effectively and efficiently.
The Americana Music Association works closely with those in the music sector, whether artists, labels, radio stations, retailers, print media, festivals, agents, publishers, etc. to help organize and build the infrastructure necessary for our genre to achieve success both creatively and financially.
To that end the Americana Music Association conducts an ongoing publicity campaign to help brand and raise awareness of Americana, hosts the annual Americana Music Festival & Conference, publishes the weekly Americana Airplay Chart, produces the annual Americana Music Honors & Awards show, participates in other music events and conferences, produces member newsletters and marketing materials, conducts research about our industry and consumers, works to increase Americana’s profile at retail, and serves as an advocate on behalf of Americana’s interests.
The Americana Music Association also focuses on creating attention for the public profile of Americana. These efforts to enhance the general awareness of Americana take the form of projects that increase general visibility and help brand the genre – all with the ultimate goal of connecting artists to an appreciative audience.
The Americana Music Association works behind the scenes within the music industry to foster an environment for growth: building infrastructure, creating networking opportunities, establishing channels that allow professional entities to work effectively and efficiently. Working smarter – not just harder – means achievement of greater success for the greatest number of participants.
