Brandi Carlile is poised for yet another big year at the Americana Music Awards, as she earned three nominations, including for the crucial Artist of the Year award.

  • Carlile also was nominated for Album of the Year and Song of the Year.

Why it matters: Carlile has risen to the top of Americana music. A touring force, she's also won over critics and sheltered new artists into the mainstream.

Driving the news: The Americana Music Association announced nominations Monday for its annual awards show in September.

  • The other Artist of the Year nominees were Jason Isbell, Allison Russell, Billy Strings and Yola.

💭 Nate's thought bubble: The Americana Music Awards can sometimes feel a little too Nashville-centric, so it was refreshing to see indie-rock darlings Big Thief garner a nomination for Duo or Group of the Year.

Full list of nominees.
