The Ryman Auditorium’s annual Bluegrass Nights summer series will welcome stars including Dailey & Vincent, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, The Del McCoury Band, and more.

For more than two decades, the Ryman Auditorium has highlighted its distinction as the birthplace of bluegrass music with the summer series. In 1945, Grand Ole Opry star Bill Monroe, along with musical cohorts Earl Scruggs, Lester Flatt, Chubby Wise and Howard Watts, stepped onto the Ryman Auditorium stage and their performance birthed the genre of music today known as bluegrass.

The 2018 Bluegrass Nights lineup includes:
June 21 – Dailey & Vincent
June 28 – Hot Rize
July 5 – Artist TBA
July 12 – The Del McCoury Band
July 19 – Rhonda Vincent & The Rage
July 26 – Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder

Each show will begin at 7:30 p.m., and will be preceded by the free WSM showcase Pickin’ On The Plaza from 6 p.m.-6:45 p.m., which features regional bluegrass bands.
