FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE MILK CARTON KIDS NOMINATED FOR AMERICANA AWARD

Duo To Perform At Newport Folk Festival, Dates With Josh Ritter And More

Acclaimed Los Angeles musical duo The Milk Carton Kids have been nominated for Best Emerging Artist of the Year for the 2013 Americana Music Association's Honors & Awards, announced today.

Award winners will be announced September 18th from the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN and broadcast live on AXS TV. In past years the show has featured some amazing moments in musical history including Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash's last live performance together, as well as appearances by Bonnie Raitt, The Avett Brothers, Civil Wars, Levon Helm, Robert Plant and more.

The Milk Carton Kids are Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan. Formed in Los Angeles, the duo's most recent album The Ash & Clay was heralded as "intimate and powerful, bittersweet and inspiring" by Performer Magazine and "like a dewy Everly Brothers, so sweet, funny and charming," by Time Out New York.
