Coming in the February issue of Texas Highways, we’ll preview the Ameripolitan Music Awards, an annual showcase of bands playing “Ameripolitan” music. 

If you want to have a say in the award winners, check out the Ameripolitan Music Awards website to vote on nominees. The site also contains a trove of information about contemporary bands playing honky-tonk, rockabilly, Western Swing, and outlaw country.

Veteran Austin honky-tonker Dale Watson launched the awards show in 2013 to support and encourage musicians playing “original music with prominent roots influence.”

The fourth edition of the Ameripolitan Music Awards takes place February 15 at the century-old Paramount Theatre in downtown Austin. Now’s your chance to vote on the winners.
