Routes and Branches Play List 09/19/09

This week's big Americana news comes out of Nashville where the Americana Association had their annual Awards Show now in it's tenth year.
Buddy Miller picked up 4 awards including: Artist Of The Year; Duo/Group Of The Year and Album Of The Year for "Written In Chalk" with his wife Julie; and Song Of The Year for the Song "Chalk" written by Julie Miller and performed by Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin. Congratulations to Buddy and Julie for all of their success. You can be sure that "Written In Chalk" is in my top 5 favorites of the year.
The award for New & Emerging Artist Of The Year went to Justin Townes Earle, while Gurf Morlix picked up the Instrumentalist Of The Year Award. There were also several Lifetime Achievement awards of which I featured the artists in this show; Asleep At The Wheel for performance; John Fogerty for Songwriter; and Sam Bush for Instrumentalist.

It was rough for me to hear that Mary Travers of Peter Paul & Mary passed away. Since I was programing our Acoustic Junction show this week I took the opportunity to feature a set of Peter Paul and Mary's music. They were very influential to my learning how to play the guitar when I was in High school. I learned each of the songs I played in the set and "Puff" is still one of my kid's favorites.
