Mellencamp Earns Americana Honor

The Americana Music Association has named John Mellencamp one of its 2010 award recipients.  The Heartland Rocker will be named the organization's Lifetime Achievement Award winner during the 9th annual Americana Music Festival and Conference in Nashville, TN in early September.  In announcing the honor the AMA credited Mellencamp for his ability to combine '...the blue collar sweat of rock and roll and the humble grit of honky tonk.'  An award will also go to Greg Leisz, a pedal steel guitarist, mandolin and bass player that has appeared on recordings by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Joni Mitchell, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris and Jesse Winchester.  Awards will be presented September 9 in the historic Ryman Auditorium.
