About Americana Music News

Now in its 7th anniversary year,  Americana Music News is a site devoted to news and reviews of Americana, folk, country, rock and reissues of all sorts.

You can reach us at amneditor@gmail.com. Our mailing address is PO Box 12541, 2255 Memorial Blvd., Murfreesboro, TN 37129-9998.

 Album submission guidelines: We welcome review copies, but strongly prefer CDs to digital downloads.  We like seeing the physical product and liner notes, and CDs are always top of mind when we grab music to listen to in the car. We don’t review albums from streams or videos.

We receive a large number of music submissions, and we have limited staff. That means we review about 5 percent of what we receive. We do try listen to every CD that crosses our desks.

    I just wanted to share this music video with you. I love it so much because the lyrics, the story and the backstory of this, especially on how so many people worked on it for free, was just incredible. Thanks
