They join an eclectic line-up of talent including Emmylou Harris, the Avett Brothers, Rodney Crowell, Rosanne Cash, Patty Griffin, Ryan Bingham and Sam Bush, among others.

Presenters for the star-studded night include Grace Potter, Lucinda Williams, Jack White and Mary Chapin Carpenter, as well as Court Yard Hounds, sisters Emily Robinson and Martie McGuire.
