A frequent winner at the Americana Music Association's Honors & Awards ceremonies, singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer Buddy Miller led this year's awards-show house band. His supporting players included Chad Cromwell, Fats Kaplin, Dominic Davis, Ian Fitchuk, Don Was, the McCrary Sisters and Little Feat founding member Bill Payne.
In a special feature, Miller was joined by guitarist Marc Ribot. Together — "with apologies to Hank Williams," he said — Miller performed an ornate cover of Williams' "Cold, Cold Heart."
