The Ameripolitan Music Awards, spearheaded by internationally acclaimed Texas Troubador, Dale Watson, were established as an annual celebration devoted to acknowledging and honoring the Ameripolitan music genre. Ameripolitan music is defined as original music with prominent roots influence, encompassing four subgenres of music (honky-tonk, western swing, rockabilly, and outlaw) that did not previously fit into any celebrated categories within the mainstream pop country music industry.[1][2] The awards are funded predominantly by fan supported donations and include 16 different award categories, with special honorary awards also presented.

The Vintage Industrial Bar was home to the 2014 Ameripolitan Festival (Europe) on December 13, 2014 in Zagreb, Croatia.[3]
