Last April, the AMA announced the first round of performers at the 19th consecutive festival and conference, which will include Brandy Clark, American Aquarium, Lee Ann Womack (in her annual showcase featuring special guests), Alejandro Escovedo, John Carter Cash, the Earls of Leicester, Don Flemons, Mary Gauthier, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, John Oates, and more.
