Maaan this time of year I am SO excited, because I get to spend time dealing with TWO types of music that I feel need to be given more love, those being rockabilly and BLUEGRASS! This time every year excites me as I get to promote and share this wonderful series that the Ryman hosts yearly called Bluegrass Nights At The Ryman.
Another truly fine band involved here are the powerhouse Bluegrass super group The Earls Of Leichester who made my TOP 50 OF 2018 with a splendid double LIVE album from the Country Music Hall Of Fame theater.
I’m going to include ALL the information below on how to purchase tickets and take part in this program hosted by iconic announcer Mr. Eddie Stubbs. This sereis of shows features A TON of good bands including one of MY personal favorites Mr. Billy Strings. HERE is the official press release:
