(Nashville, Tenn.) April 19, 2016 -- The Americana Music Association wishes to congratulate its 2013 Americana Honors & Awards nominee (and 2013 GRAMMY Americana Album of the Year nominee) The Lumineers on its No. 1 Billboard Top 200 debut, Cleopatra, this week.

Along with recent releases from Margo Price, Bonnie Raitt, Chris Stapleton, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Hayes Carll, and Lucinda Williams, The Lumineers' Cleopatra demonstrates the continued growth of Americana as one of the most influential movements on the musical landscape today.

"Every week it seems there's another Americana act on the Billboard sales chart who are dedicated to their artistic passion and reaping the benefits of that commitment," said Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. "I am thrilled for The Lumineers' success and can't wait to see them when they open the Americana Music Festival & Conference this fall in Nashville."

The Lumineers will perform at Nashville's Acsend Amphitheatre on Tuesday, September 20 (sold out) and Thursday, September 22 (tickets available here).
