Each year the Americana Music Association honors distinguished members of the music community. Six member-voted awards and several Lifetime Achievement Awards are handed out while over 2000 artists, music-loving fans and entertainment industry executives look on.

Executive producers are Martin Fischer (High Five Entertainment) and Jed Hilly (Americana Music Association) and producer is Edie Lynn Hoback (High Five Entertainment).
“We’re honored to have been chosen again to produce this unbelievable event and look forward to bringing it to television this year and hopefully, every year thereafter.” says Martin Fischer, President of High Five Entertainment. "With so many of the best musicians in the world coming together in this wonderful venue, it has become the annual emotional and musical highlight of our entire year-long production schedule. We are humbled by the trust and confidence that the Americana Music Association places in us."
This year’s star studded event will be streamed live and will air on PBS later this year in the Austin City Limits timeslot titled "ACL Presents: Americana Music Festival 2014".
"Truthfully we couldn't produce the show without Martin Fischer, Edie Hoback and the High Five team" says Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. "In any relationship, trust is paramount, and with High Five as our partners, we know our show is produced by the best in the biz”.
