Americana Music Awards: Avett Brothers, Buddy Miller, Mumford and Sons, Robert Plant Winners

Singer and guitarist Buddy Miller was the night’s big winner, taking home two awards, for Artist of the Year and for Instrumentalist of the Year. Robert Plant was recognized for Album of the Year for his band’s 2010 disc Band of Joy.

The Avett Brothers were named Duo/Group of the Year for the third time, while the ultra-buzzy Brits of Mumford & Sons were acknowledged as New/Emerging Artist of the Year, beating out The Civil Wars, The Secret Sisters, and Jessica Lea Mayfield, all of whom performed at the show. (Side note: The Civil Wars were amazing, as usual.) The Song of the Year award went to Justin Townes Earle’s “Harlem River Blue,” beating out one of Miranda Lambert’s favorites, Hayes Carll.
