The Eagles’ Don Henley will receive 2015’s Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award at the Americana Music Honors and Awards Ceremony taking place at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. The rest of this year’s honourees are Buffy Saint-Marie, Ricky Skaggs, Los Lobos, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
“These artists have not only influenced the Americana community, but the musical landscape on the whole,” says Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. “They all have been an inspiration to our community and we are humbled they will honor us in song at the Ryman this fall.”
The ceremony will take place September 16th, one week before the release of Henley’s country-leaning Cass County album.
