Sounds Australia have sent some of our most talented up-and-coming — and firmly-established — country artists to the genre’s mecca – Nashville.

The Americana Music Festival & Conference is four days of “music and education”, kicking off today.

In particular, the Aussies will be dominating AmericanaFest: which will no doubt be renamed by next year.

Via a press release: “An all-Australian line up will grace the stage of the Bluebird Café, the legendary venue featured in the hit TV series Nashville, this Tuesday 12th September, followed by A Taste of Australia on the 15th September – an event that invites a number of the genre’s most influential professionals to an afternoon of networking with Australian industry members and special showcase sets from officially selected Australian artists at AmericanaFest 2017.”

Artists showcasing their wares include All Our Exes Live in Texas, Andy Golledge, Colin Hay, Falls, Grizzlee Train, Kasey Chambers, Larissa Tandy, Shane Nicholson, Taasha Coates and Tim Wheatley.
