What do Alabama Shakes, Mumford & Sons, and Mary Gauthier have in common? They are all prior winners of the Americana Music Associations New/Emerging Artist of the Year award.
And, this year, her album Rifles & Rosary Beads is nominated for Album of the Year alongside Brandi Carlile, Margo Price, and Jason Isbell.
The Associated Press calls Mary Gauthier one of the best songwriters of her generation. The Wall Street Journal calls her one of Americana musics most admired artists across the U.S. and around the world.
Her songs have been praised by both Bob Dylan and Tom Waits, and recorded by Jimmy Buffet, Blake Shelton, and others.
Originally from New Orleans and currently a Nashville resident, Gauthier has battled back from hard knocks and bad habits to emerge as one of the most poignant and powerful songwriters of her generation.
