The Milk Carton Kids Nominated or Americana Music Award

Grammy-nominated folk duo The Milk Carton Kids have been nominated in the best duo/group category for the Americana Music Associations¹s 2014 honors. The awards ceremony will take place at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on September 17, 2014.

The duo recently released a performance DVD by The Milk Carton Kids entitled Live From Lincoln Theatre which cinematically captures the group¹s celebrated on-stage repartee, virtuosic flat picking guitar work, and flawless vocal harmonies. The DVD is available in the Deluxe Version of their Grammy-nominated album The Ash & Clay, as a stand-alone DVD long box, and digitally.

The Milk Carton Kids are currently amidst a 46-date North American tour which has seen a majority of performances sell out months in advance. The trek will culminate with an appearance at the historic Newport Folk Festival on July 26th.

"There is something almost unnatural about the mellifluous harmonies of The Milk Carton Kids, something freakish. It¹s hard to believe that two people can sync to each other like that" - New York Times Magazine
