George Strait to Honor Jim Lauderdale at This Year’s Americana Awards

Jim Lauderdale is getting a big honor this year . . . and it’s not because of his magnificent hair.

The Americana Honors and Awards Show will be honoring Jim with a lifetime achievement award at this year’s show on Sept. 21 at the Ryman Auditorium—and none other than George Strait will be presenting the award. George will present Jim with the Wagonmaster Award, named for Country Music Hall of Fame member Porter Wagoner.

Over the course of his career, George has recorded more than a dozen of Jim’s songs, including “Twang,” “I Gotta Get to You” and “Do the Right Thing.” For the last 14 years, Jim has hosted the Americana Honors and Awards Show.

This is shaping up to be another great year for the Americana Honors and Awards Show.
