Jason Isbell swept the three categories in which he was nominated at the Americana Music Awards at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville last night.  Isbell scored victories in the "Artist of the Year", "Song of the Year" and "Album of the Year" categories.  Sturgill Simpson, who caused a stir on Facebook this week, picked up the "Emerging Act of the Year" award.

And you gotta dig Todd Snider rockin' the wife-beater while performing with the Hard Working Americans last night (see below video).
