The Americana Music Society exists to foster and support the creation, performance and appreciation of Americana music in Memphis and the MidSouth.

We believe that the City of Memphis has a unique role in the story of Americana, as it does with so much of American music. Certainly Sun Studios, where the vision of Sam Phillips created a nexus of black and white music resulting in genre-bending artists who blended blues, country, rock and soul to chart a new course for popular music, must be considered Holy Ground in the Americana world. The roots of American music are in Memphis; therefore the roots of Americana are in Memphis.
