The Road To AmericanaFest is a grass roots initiative of the Americana Music Association in support of artists appearing at the 17th Annual Americana Music Festival & Conference, which runs from September 20-25 in Nashville.
Nicholson will appear at this year’s Festival along with Bonnie Raitt, John Prine, Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and many more.
