5th annual Ameripolitan Music Award

$43,755 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 188 people in 6 months
The 5th AnnualAmeripolitan Music Awards will be held at The Guest House at Graceland in Memphis TN on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, at 8 p.m. Ameripolitan Music Showcases will kick of the celebrations beginning, Saturday, Febuary 10, 2018. Nominations will open to the general public on Friday, September 1, 2017.
All funds raised this year and every year go directly to presenting the Ameripolitan Music Awards show and promoting Ameripolitan artists, DJs, Venues, Musicians and Festivals. The Ameripolitan Music Awards is a non-profit organization.

The Ameripolitan Music Awards, a 501(c)3, was created under the leadership of Texas Honky Tonk legend, Dale Watson, to acknowledge the exceptional creativity and dedication of roots artists whose work does not readily conform to the tastes of today's "Country", or other music genres and organizations. The Ameripolitan Music Awards were founded to benefit and acknowledge these artists. It also provides fans with a means of finding these artists and their music.

The Ameripolitan Music Awards acknowledges those Ameripolitan artists whose music honors tradition while demonstrating exceptional originality, creativity, and musicianship. Through their work, Ameripolitan music is now being defined. The Awards also acknowledge Ameripolitan DJs and venues that promote these artists and their music along with honoring a living legend who has kept the tradition alive through their music and perseverance.
Ameripolitan is a new music genre with prominent roots influence. It is broken into four related subcategories: Honky Tonk, Western Swing, Rockabilly and Outlaw. Artists and bands can fall into one or more of these categories. Musical and lyrical creativity is critical but to be considered Ameripolitan music, it must retain some of these traditional elements as well.

All purchases will be available at WILL CALL starting Saturday at 2pm.

"I'm really disappointed to let y'all know that Brian Setzer will not be appearing at the 2018 Ameripolitan Awards as we originally announced. When I first talked to Brian about accepting this honor, we were looking at a different date and that change has meant that he's unable to attend - he'll actually be traveling back to the states at that time from his Japanese tour. We were so excited to have Brian and he would be with us if he could - I wanted to apologize to y'all for this change personally, as I jumped the gun in my excitement. But, I promise you that we're going to have a fantastic four days in Memphis! In fact, we're announcing our awards nominees next week. My apologies again to each of you and , of course , a full refund is available to any one that wants one in the light of Brian’s absence. Stay tuned for more details coming soon and I will certainly be more careful on the certainty of things in the future."
Sincerely,
Dale Watson
