The War and Treaty on Country's Biggest Stages
It's not the first time the Michiganders have been on one of the biggest stages in country music. At the 2021 ACM awards, they performed a cover of U2's 'Pride (In the Name of Love)' with Dierks Bentley.
While they may be just getting introduced to a wider audience, in the world of Americana and Folk, they've racked up some impressive awards including 2019 Emerging Artist of the Year at the Americana Music Honors & Awards, 2020 Artist of the Year from the Folk Alliance International and the 2022 Duo/Group of the Year from the American Music Honors and Awards.
While they do tour extensively, home is southern Michigan at Albion, so don't be surprised if you see these famous faces around town.
