Reilly summed it up best…

‘They call this the Americana Awards but really it should be the All the Great Artists Out Right Now Awards.’

-John C Reilly

We here at the Sitch are just thrilled to see so many enormously talented artists and friends on that list, and cannot wait to be at the Awards on September 12 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville!  A big congrats to all the honorees.
