BMI Congratulates its UK Americana Awards 2022 Winners

Posted in News on January 28, 2022

Last night, the AMA-UK, a professional trade association representing and advocating for the voice of American Roots music in the UK, announced the winners of this year’s prestigious UK Americana Awards. BMI is proud that several of our songwriters, as well as international writers who choose BMI for U.S. representation, took center stage in prestigious categories. The nominated and award-winning artists, songs and albums are the result of AMA-UK’s uniquely open and member-driven process, which is comprised of musicians, both from the UK and overseas, as well as professionals from all sectors of the music industry, such as agents, promoters, venues, festivals, labels, distributors, retailers, management, touring, journalists, broadcasters and publicists.
