Ryman Auditorium To Launch Six-Week Americana Music Series

Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium will host a new annual series, Americana at the Ryman, beginning this summer. The series will include six shows running each Sunday evening throughout July and August, with each show beginning at 7 p.m. Each week, a pre-show celebration will be held beginning at 4:30 p.m. featuring live music on the Ryman plaza.

The series launches July 15 with Buddy Miller and special guests Lee Ann Womack, Tony Joe White, The McCrary Sisters, Elizabeth Cook, and Parker Millsap.

Similar to the Ryman’s Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman series, Americana at the Ryman will also partner with 650 AM WSM. Route 650, a 24/7 streaming station, will be a presenting partner.

“Americana at the Ryman” Schedule:
July 15: Buddy Miller and Friends Lee Ann Womack, Tony Joe White, The McCrary Sisters, Elizabeth Cook and Parker Millsap
July 22: Jim Lauderdale and William Fitzsimmons
July 29: Mark O’Connor and Brandy Clark
Aug. 5: To Be Announced Soon
Aug. 12: Amanda Shires and Caitlin Rose
Aug. 19: Justin Townes Earle and The Band of Heathens

“The Ryman Americana Series is modeled after our Bluegrass Nights Series which will kick off its 25th season this summer,” said Sally Williams, Senior Vice President of Programming and Artist Relations. “Over the course of six weeks, Americana and roots legends will take the stage for the inaugural Americana Series as will the most exciting new artists. With Bluegrass Nights, we see the same season pass holders come back to the same seats year after year. A lot of deep friendships have been formed by bluegrass fans sitting together in Ryman pews. We look forward to the same happening with the Ryman Americana Series.”

“We’re thrilled the Ryman has created a series to show off Nashville’s Americana community to the world. It’s the heart and soul of this town and there is no greater venue in the world to see this talent,” said Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association.

Series passes for “Americana at the Ryman” are on sale now. Individual show tickets are available for purchase beginning June 4 at 10 a.m. With purchase of an “Americana at the Ryman” concert ticket, patrons have the option to add on a daytime tour ticket for a discounted rate of $15.00.
