"Americana music is a very important element of the ever-evolving, global, independent music scene," examines Robert Weingartz, Chairman and CEO of AirPlay Direct. "It's also a genre that has allowed artists to grow beyond their core fan base. We've seen successful Americana projects from Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, John Mellencamp, Merle Haggard, John Fogerty, Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash, etc. Those are names I would never shy from being compared to. We hope to find tomorrow's budding talent with this contest."
