Called "the best awards show in the world" by Paste Magazine and “The GRAMMYs of US Roots Music” by the Times of London, the hour long special was filmed live at the Ryman Auditorium on September 17, 2014 during the sold-out Americana Music Association's Honors & Awards and features special performances from the genre's established and rising stars.

Hosted by Jim Lauderdale with an all-star house band led by Americana favorite and 2014 Instrumentalist of the Year Buddy Miller, featuring the legendary Ry Cooder, the show runs the gamut of Americana music.
