UK legend Billy Bragg made a rare appearance in the U.S. to attend the Americana Music Festival and made time to stop by Epiphone's Masterbilt Century film series shot at the Urban Cowboy. Bragg showed off his new Masterbilt Century Olympic and performed his classic "A New England" which he dedicated to the late Kirsty MacColl.
Bragg was the recipient of the Americana Lifetime Achievement award given out at the annual awards concert held at the legendary Ryman Auditorium and had the audience in the palm of his hand with a stunning version of Woody Guthrie's "I Ain't Got No Home In This World Anymore." Bragg joked to the sold out crowd, "not only did you let Tom Hiddleston go out with Taylor Swift, you let him stand on this very stage and impersonate Hank Williams." Check out Bragg's new collection of classic blues and folk songs, Shine A Light
