AMERICANA MUSIC ASSOCIATION CONGRATULATES 
THE AVETT BROTHERS ON 
TRUE SADNESS

NO. 1 BILLBOARD TOP ALBUM SALES DEBUT    

The Americana Music Association wishes to congratulate three-time Americana Group of the Year, The Avett Brothers, on their continued success as they topped multiple Billboard charts this week.  

The Avett Brothers reach a familiar chart perch this week -- No. 1 on Billboard's Americana/Folk Albums chart, with new album True Sadness,” wrote Kevin Rutherford for Billboard.  “But the folk-rockers' ninth studio album also takes them to new heights on other Billboard charts, including Top Rock AlbumsAlternative Albums and Top Album Sales, as they land their first No. 1 rank on each survey.” 

Along with recent releases from The Lumineers, Sturgill Simpson, Margo Price, Bonnie Raitt, Chris Stapleton, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Hayes Carll, and Lucinda Williams, just to name a few, The Avett Brothers’ True Sadness demonstrates the continued growth of Americana as one of the most influential movements on the musical landscape today.
