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.
