The nominations for the 15th annual Americana Honors & Awards were announced in Washington, D.C. earlier this week, and our congratulations go out to Woodstock steel guitar wonder Cindy Cashdollar, who earned a nod in the Instrumentalist of the Year category, along with Stuart Duncan, Jedd Hughes and Sara Watkins. Cashdollar’s next Greater Nippertown performance is slated for the Towne Crier Cafe in Beacon, where she’ll be teaming up with acoustic blues queen Rory Block on Saturday, July 2.

The winners will be announced during the Americana Honors and Awards show on Wednesday, September 21 at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
