Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium will host the “Americana at the Ryman” series this summer, presented by radio station Route 650. The series celebrates American roots music and will launch July 15 with multi-award-winning Americana Artist and Instrumentalist of the Year Buddy Miller along with special guests Lee Ann Womack, Tony Joe White, The McCrary Sisters, Elizabeth Cook and Parker Millsap. Other shows include Amanda Shires and Caitlin Rose (Aug. 12) and Justin Townes Earle and The Band of Heathens (Aug. 19).
“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,” Sally Williams, Senior Vice President of Programming and Artist Relations said in a statement, comparing the run to the Ryman’s 25-year-old bluegrass series. “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.”
