Americana at the Ryman is presented by Route 650 and it’ll celebrate American roots music with six shows through July and August. The new annual festival will include both industry veterans and newcomers. Americana music fans will not want to miss this.
The series starts July 15 with multi-award winning artist and instrumentalist, Buddy Miller. Lee Ann Womack, Tony Joe White, The McCrary Sisters, Elizabeth Cook and Parker Millsap are the evening’s special guests. Jim Lauderdale and William Fitzsimmons, Mark O’Connor and Brandy Clark, Amanda Shires and Caitlin Rose and Justin Townes Earle and The Band of Heathens are also slated for the festival. The full schedule is listed below.
“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.”
Series passes for the festival are now on sale. Individual sale tickets are available for sale starting on June 4 at 10 AM. With every purchase of one concert ticket, patrons can add a daytime tour ticket for a discounted rate of $15. Ticket information is available here.
