Jason Isbell rides Grammy success to Americana nominations

By The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Jason Isbell leads the nominees for the Americana Music Association's Honors and Awards with nominations in four categories, thanks to his critically acclaimed album "The Nashville Sound," which earned him two Grammy Awards earlier this year.

Also among the nominations announced Tuesday are country singer Margo Price and folk singer Brandi Carlile, who are each nominated for artist, song and album of the year.

Also nominated for artist of the year is folk singer-songwriter John Prine. Mary Gauthier earned a nomination for album of the year for her veteran inspired record "Rifles & Rosary Beads."

The 17th annual awards show will be held on Sept. 12 in Nashville, Tennessee.
