The Milk Carton Kids Grab Americana Nod

The Milk Carton Kids have once again been nominated as Duo/Group of the Year from The Americana Music Association’s 15th Annual Honors & Awards.

The winners will be announced during the live show on September 21st at the Historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. The Milk Carton Kids won the category in 2014.

Last year The Milk Carton Kids received their second Grammy nomination, this time in the Best American Roots Performance category for their song “The City of Our Lady” from their third album Monterey. The duo was previously nominated in Best Folk Album in 2013 for their album The Ash & Clay.

In addition, the duo recently made their acting debut in Episode 3 of Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter's new HBO drama “Vinyl” as soft rock duo England Dan and John Ford Coley performing the seventies classic “Simone”.

The Milk Carton Kids are currently on tour in continued support of their acclaimed album Monterey.

"It's hard to overstate how beautiful the music of the milk carton kids is...their voices, their harmonies, their melodies...just so breathtaking." - NPR All Songs Considered
