NASHVILLE, Tenn. - July 12, 2019 - PRLog -- Compared to Ike and Tina Turner, The War & Treaty has seemingly come out of nowhere to grab top honors at the 2019 Americana Honors filming live on September 11th at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, which isn't the case at all.

Before joining the Americana genre, Tanya would forge her own path through the music industry performing in Sister Act 2 with Lauryn Hill and signing with Sean "Diddy" Combs while Michael, a self-taught piano player, wrote and performed at church services and throughout his tour in Iraq performing original songs written to honor the fallen.

Coming together to create The War & Treaty would be a lesson in love that neither of the two would see coming. During a NPR ( interview, Michael was asked about keeping their personal relationship out of their public persona, Michael responded, "Once you try and contain it, you start to try to hold the reigns. That's frustrating to a free spirit. We feel that type of freedom heals the world and gives people hope."

The 2019 Americana Honors will broadcast on CMT, Austin City Limits via PBS, AXS TV and via SiriusXM Radio, BBC2, WMOT, WRLT, WSM, Voice of America and NPR Music. Watch a high-energy performance of "Down to the River" here and their feature on CBS Sunday Morning here (

As "The War and Treaty", Michael and Tanya serve up funky bass lines, keys, lap steel, acoustic strings, and stripped-down percussion to create a swampy Southern soul bed for the couple's superior vocals. The War and Treaty deliver live shows and records that make the hairs on the back of necks stand up, their music and stories bring tears and goosebumps that help to tear down walls leaving the audience to feel every aspect of the music.
