Now, more than ever, you have more control over where you sit for this prestigious ceremony so we can provide you with the best experience.

• $125
• $165

*Fees not included.

You can view the Ryman Auditorium seating map, including 2018 Honors & Awards price tiers, here.

We've also created a ticket purchasing schedule to help ensure that the earlier you buy a Conference Registration, the better chance you'll have at scoring a great seat for the Honors & Awards.

On these select dates notated below, an individualized code will be sent at 10 a.m. (CDT) to each unique email address associated with a 2018 Conference Registration. The ticket sale will begin at Noon (CDT) on these same dates. You MUST complete the Badge Information Form to receive the email (if you have not, see details below).

If you purchase a conference registration after September 1, you will immediately receive information on how to purchase your Honors & Awards tickets. The last day to purchase Honors & Awards tickets will be 11:59pm CDT on Friday, September 7, 2018.

Conference Registrant Purchasers:

• If you have bought a Conference Registration and have not yet completed the Badge Information Form submitting all attendees and unique email addresses, then you must do so in order for the individualized codes to be sent to any and all attendees within your party or group. The link to this form can be located by the purchaser in the payment confirmation email from info@seetickets.us.
• If you have already completed the Badge Information Form but did NOT provide unique email addresses for each attendee in your party or group, please email this information to info@americanamusic.org in order for the individualized codes to be sent to ALL attendees within your party or group.

How can I be seated next to other people in my group?

• Two Seats Together: If there are 2 people who want to sit together, we recommend that one person purchase 2 tickets in one transaction, rather than each person individually buying tickets.
• More Than Two Seats Together: If there are more than 2 people who want to sit together, then we recommend coordinating purchasers to be on the ticketing page at the same time. We recommend communicating with each other so that you are sure the seats are together before completing the purchases. You may need to continue to search for new tickets until the system assigns seats next to each other. Please note, you may end up with seats farther from the stage because of this.

Our Conference Registrations are the ultimate pass to AMERICANAFEST®, taking place Sept. 11-16 in many venues across Music City. From top music industry panels to nightly showcases and numerous special events in town, this pass is for those who want to experience all this destination music event has to offer. Buy your pass today!


What do I wear?
This is not a black tie event. Most people are attending evening showcases after the awards show, so we recommend you dress comfortably for an evening out on the town. Casual chic always works!

Where do I pick up my Honors & Awards show ticket(s)?
Your tickets will be included with your conference credentials at the Americana registration desk during designated times the week of AMERICANAFEST® or at the Ryman box office night of show. Awards show tickets will NOT be mailed to you.

Are Honors & Awards show tickets refundable?

What happens if I lose my Honors & Awards show ticket?
You will have to purchase another one.

Will I receive a confirmation letter indicating a purchase was made?
Yes. We ask that you bring the letter with you when pick up your tickets.

Is there a shuttle bus?
The buses will be outside the Ryman Auditorium to take you to the evening showcase venues. You must be wearing a wristband or a registration badge in order to board.
