The Black Opry Revue, Joshua Ray Walker, Miko Marks, Asleep at the Wheel, Town Mountain, Sunny Sweeney, Kaitlin Butts, and James McMurtry are among the first batch of artists announced for AmericanaFest 2022. The annual celebration of roots music returns to venues around Nashville from Sept. 13 through 17.

The 89 artists announced on Wednesday marks just the initial dump of performers ­— hundreds typically play the festival. This year’s lineup also marks the official AmericanaFest debut of the Black Opry, a collective of Black country artists that, since loosely coming together for the first time during last year’s festival, has transformed into a leader in the movement to bring racial equity to country music.

After moving online in 2020 because of the pandemic, AmericanaFest returned to in-person panels and performances in 2021, with stellar sets by Maggie Rose, Dave Hause, David Ramirez, and S.G. Goodman. Passes for the 2022 festival are currently on sale.
