The War and Treaty shined bright at the 2023 ACM Awards last night, marking the first time a black duo has performed on the ACM Awards. The emotional and powerhouse vocal performance of “Blank Page” brought the crowd to their feet, earning the duo a standing ovation. The performance can be viewed HERE.

"We felt like we had just moved into a new house. We felt nervous, we had our anxieties but we breathed in and said to each other, this feels like a nice place to put down some roots,” the duo said. "And having neighbors like Garth Brooks and Dolly Parton being so welcoming was the apple pie! Next stop, Nashville on Saturday!"

Additionally, the husband-and-wife duo recently received the exciting news of their nomination for “Duo/Group of the Year” at the upcoming Americana Honors & Awards. The duo previously won this award in 2022.

The War And Treaty’s ACM performance and Americana Honors & Awards nomination come on the heels of recent interview and performance on The Jennifer Hudson show - watch HERE.

Founded in 2014 by the husband-and-wife duo Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter, The War And Treaty have emerged as one of the most electrifying new acts in American music. With a lionhearted sonic blend – both roaring with passion and tender to the touch, they "are making soul moves that are captivating everyone who sees them," (Hits Magazine). Earning respect, they’ve gone on to appear as top-flight collaborators, and have been recognized by the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry and the Americana Music Association as "2022 Duo/Group of the Year.” With more than 100 shows last year, the duo have dominated stages across the globe including North America, Europe, Italy, Australia, and Ireland, while headlining their own shows and opening for a diverse group of living legends; Al Green, Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, John Legend, Lauren Daigle and Van Morrison among them.
