A NOTE ON CATEGORIES

‘Ameripolitan’ is a word that represents the different heritage of roots music that inform the artists that you see here.

 

Much of the music is hard to define to a single genre and as musicians, we tend to draw inspiration from many things to create a unique voice or sound.

We have these award categories to allow us to celebrate and acknowledge as many artists working under the umbrella of Ameripolitan music as we can.

The artists nominated in each category demonstrate the influence of that particular genre of music beautifully, even though they may play music that speaks across the board.
