Oodles and oodles of stuff happened last night at the Americana Music Awards last night including a Tom T. Hall cameo during the Peter Cooper and Lee Ann Womack duet of “I Love”, but I have to go to a goofy staff meeting where we will have a 2 hour discussion about where to park the van and I don’t have time to write about it.
But…I do have a list of the winners and some links about the festivities. I’m a Googling machine!
