Powerhouse UMG Nashville duo The War And Treaty took home the “Duo/Group of the Year” award during last night’s 21st Annual Americana Honors & Awards held at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. This marks their second award from the Americana Music Association after their previous win for “Emerging Act of the Year” in 2019. Prior to their accomplishment, the husband and wife team took the stage to perform their new romantic stunner “That’s How Love Is Made,” which was immediately met with a standing ovation as “they won over the audience with their soulful duet,” (Associated Press).
Continuing the momentum, The War And Treaty hosted their own showcase last night at Nashville’s City Winery where the packed house was on their feet for floor-rattling performances of fan-favorites like “Five More Minutes” and new songs from their highly-anticipated album, produced by Grammy award-winner Dave Cobb. “That’s How Love Is Made” is available at all digital retailers here and fans can watch the 2022 Americana Honors & Awards in its entirety through its official livestream here.
Founded in 2014 by the husband-and-wife duo Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter, The War And Treaty have emerged as one of the most electrifying new acts in American music, with a sound that cuts across the wide breadth of classic roots styles. Powerhouse vocalists with a lionhearted sonic blend – both roaring with passion and tender to the touch – the duo fuse country, soul, gospel and rock ‘n’ roll and more into stunning gradients of dark and light and quench thirsty souls and shake the rafters of world-famous performance halls. Earning rave reviews across the board, the duo were named the International Folk Music Awards “2021 Artist of the Year.” The duo has spent 2022 thrilling crowds across North America, Europe, Italy, Australia, Ireland and more. The duo has opened for artists such as Al Green, Willie Nelson, Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, John Legend and Lauren Daigle while their multifaceted collaborative efforts include Dierks Bentley, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Leslie Jordan, Mumford & Sons, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Sturgill Simpson. High-profile stops have included the UK’s Glastonbury Festival, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, multiple appearances at the Grand Ole Opry, and a tribute to Ray Charles at the Country Music Hall of Fame class of 2022 induction ceremony. They are currently on the road with their HEARTS ON FIRE TOUR with a stop in Denver tonight (9/15) before performing at Telluride Blues & Brews Festival (9/16) and BeachLife Ranch Festival (9/17).
