Patty Griffin’s song “Ohio” didn’t snag the award for Song of the Year at last night’s Americana Music Awards, but the acclaimed singer-songwriter and local treasure did take the stage to perform a poignant rendition of the song with her former beau Robert Plant. The top song award went to Jason Isbell’s “Cover Me Up.” Isbell’s album “Southeastern” bested Wimberley’s Sarah Jarosz’ “Build Me Up From Bones” for Album of the Year.

Texas legend, San Antonio-based conjunto accordionist Flaco Jiménez the received the lifetime achievement award for instrumentalist.
