NASHVILLE, October 4, 2007 –PATTY GRIFFIN is the latest performer to confirm her appearance at the Americana Music Association's Honors and Awards show on November 1st at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN.

"Appearing with Griffin are the crème de la crème of Americana Music, says

The show will once again be hosted by Jim Lauderdale and will feature a band led by Buddy Miller. The Americana Music Association will toast winners in six member-voted categories: Album, Artist, Instrumentalist, New and Emerging Artist, Song and Duo/Group of the Year. Lyle Lovett will be honored with the inaugural Trailblazer Award in recognition of his stature as a true musical pioneer who has created timeless musical capsules of individualistic style and purpose. Joe Ely will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance, and Jim Dickinson for Producer/Engineer. Venerable scribe Guy Clark will accept the Americana President's award on behalf of his friend, Townes Van Zandt. Clark's performance will pay tribute to the late Van Zandt, whose unparalleled influence touches the upper echelon of songcraft.
