Contemporary roots music that blends elements of folk, country, alt-country, blues and singer-songwriters, with a uniquely homegrown, American sound.

Americana is a radio format that is generally album oriented and has its roots based in folk, blues, country, bluegrass, and rock. Long after the legacy of KFAT, the genre emerged in the nineties as country became more polished and mainstream and the music industry needed a vehicle for traditional roots american music. Many veteran country artists are now part of the genre. Many triple a and alt country artists are played on americana radio, and vice versa. While much of the music is acoustic in nature, there are certainly no boundaries.

Classic country lyrical themes are often still prevalent in americana, such as cowboys, outlaws, western, Texas, and heartland references. Every year the Americana Music Association, or AMA, hosts the Americana Music Festival & Conference which provides great exposure for the genre. RadioIO hosts their IO business music channel called Americana. This channel offers an exciting mix of hand selected americana tracks from the 90's right up to today.
