All Americana

At the Americana Music Association, we believe that Americana music is inclusive of all people. You can share this graphic on social media if you feel the same way.

This message was created by our new Diversity & Inclusion Committee that is addressing issues of inclusivity, representation and identity within the Americana community.

Committee Members

The members of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee include Brandi Carlile (Artist), Garth Fundis (Producer, President of the Americana Music Association Board of Directors), Courtney Gregg (Carnival Music), David Macias (Thirty Tigers), Jacquelyn Marushka (Marushka Media), Leyla McCalla (Artist), Allison Russell (Artist), Shannon Sanders (BMI/Producer) and Caroline Randall Williams (Author/Activist/Teacher), plus Americana Music Association Executive Director Jed Hilly and Manager of Marketing and Member Relations Anna Lee Williams who serve as facilitators.

Taking Action

You might've seen our new "All Americana" social media campaign on our Instagram. Featuring artists like Amythyst Kiah, Jerry Pentecost, Joe Henry, Raul Malo and Tift Merritt, you can check out their personal connections to Americana music on our Story Highlights. In September 2021, the Diversity & Inclusion Committee will curate a variety of panels that spotlight Black, Hispanic/Latine and LGBTQ+ voices at our AMERICANAFEST conference. We also plan to continue these important conversations into the fall following the event.
