What is Ameripolitan?

We’re not leaving Country Music behind, we’re taking “real” country music with us.

The Ameripolitan Music Awards were created to benefit and acknowledge artists whose work does not readily conform to the tastes of today’s “country” or other music genres and organizations. It also provides fans with a means of finding these artists and their music.

Ameripolitan – This thought provoking word is intended to be an invitation to discuss the future of the music that is important to so many of us. By leaving the hopelessly compromised word “country” behind and exclusively using the term “Ameripolitan”, our intention is to reestablish this music’s own unique identity, elevate its significance and help reinvigorate it creatively. Also, because of our place in history, we have the privilege and responsibility to pass a great musical tradition on to future generations who will otherwise have no direct connection to this music.

The Ameripolitan Music genre is here. We invite all of you who love Ameripolitan Music to help spread the word.

Where can I listen to Ameripolitan?

    Hi Mike!

    My husband & I have watched & enjoyed “American Pickers” since the first day it aired. We didn’t realize though just how much fun it would be getting to know all of you there over the years!
    We are blessed this summer to have the opportunity to get away for a few days…..and after about 3 minutes of thinking, we both said “Let’s see the Picker’s store in Nashville.” We’ve talked about it since ya’ll opened there & can’t wait to see all the “rusty gold”.
    Of course, my husband is “really” hoping he might catch Ms. Danny D in town. He and our boys are hopelessly taken with her charms. I would just love to meet all of you…AND….I wanna see the STUFF!
    Is it possible to know if she might be in town around the July 4th Holiday this year? I would love to surprise Rob if possible.
    Thanks for being such an awesome “caretaker” of our history!
