Nashville, Tenn. (May 12, 2014) - Echoing its "Our Roots Run Deep" tagline, Sugar Hill Records is thrilled to congratulate the roster artists nominated for 2014 Americana Music Awards.

Sarah Jarosz's 2013 release Build Me Up From Bones has been nominated for Album of the Year.
Hailed by The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor, USA Today and more, the album was released just months after her graduation from the New England Conservatory of Music and it debuted at #2 on the Americana Music Chart then quickly moved to the #1 spot for six consecutive weeks.
Build Me Up From Bones was also recognized by the Grammy Awards with nominations for Best Folk Album and Best American Roots Song. Jarosz's tour in support of Build Me Up From Bones includes stops across the United States, United Kingdom and Ireland; a full tour list is available here.

In addition to past and present touring with musicians Chris Thile, Earl Scruggs, Hot Rize, Ricky Skaggs and others, Sutton is one of Nashville's most in-demand session players and producers, recently taking the helm on Della Mae's Grammy-nominated This World Oft Can Be.
