Ian Munsick celebrated his album White Buffalo earlier this week on Tuesday night (May 16) at the Ryman with a sold-out Music City show.
The Warner Music Group Nashville artist treated the packed house to the 18 songs on his Western-inspired project, kicking off the show with the tongue-in-cheek, uptempo first track “From the Horse’s Mouth.” Halfway through the set, Munsick delivered a stripped-down performance of “Long Haul” from his debut album Coyote Cry, and “Long Live Cowgirls,” his hit duet featuring Cody Johnson which has racked up nearly 100 million streams.
Munsick received a plaque commemorating the milestone during an industry reception ahead of the show. Introducing the song, Munsick shared the news with the crowd.
“About an hour ago, my label Warner Music had a party backstage and they gave me a plaque because my song ‘Long Live Cowgirls’ went Gold,” he shared. “To my surprise, they gave me another plaque because it turns out ‘Long Haul’ just went Gold as well. Now, neither of these songs were on the radio very often. That just means that you guys made these songs go Gold all by yourselves. So thank you for listening to my music—it’s because of you that I get to be on this stage and I could never thank you guys enough.”
After completing the album’s tracklist with “Indian Paintbrush,” the ecstatic crowd began stomping their feet for his stampeding breakthrough hit “Horses Are Faster,” which inspired Munsick to move to Nashville. After concluding his set to a standing ovation, Munsick appeared for a special encore performance of one of his first recordings, a cover of Wade Montgomery‘s “Weakness,” alongside The Munsick Boys comprised of his father Dave and brothers Tris and Sam Munsick.
Tuesday’s show was the final ride on Munsick’s headlining “Long Live Cowgirls Tour,” which sold out shows across the country including stops in New Braunfels, Baton Rouge, Denver and more.
