Concert Announcement: Old Crow Medicine Show New Year’s Eve!

 

Nashville’s own Old Crow Medicine Show will once again play the historic Ryman Auditorium, this time to ring in 2013.  This is the third year that Old Crow has celebrated the New Year on the Ryman stage, in the past bringing the audience to their feet with such hits as “Wagon Wheel” and “Caroline.”  After the first hsow was over, fans immediately began asking to make it an annual event, and they’re finally back!  Singer and fiddle player, Ketch Secor, has said: “Playing the Ryman is like coming home.  Having the chance to play that historic stage is always a humbling and inspiring experience.” Old Crow released their newest album, “Carry Me Back,” on July 17th of this year.  Pokey LaFarge & The South City Three will open the show.

Tickets go on sale Friday, September 21 and are available here.

We have two on sales happening this Friday, September 14 –  Chris Young (Nov. 15) and Ray LaMontagne (Nov. 29) both at 10:00 a.m.

November 15 will be Chris Young’s headlining debut at the Ryman.  Openers on the concert include Thomas Rhett and Joanna Smith.  Young made the announcement about the show to his fans via YouTube.

Entertainment Weekly precisely predicted the baritone-voiced Chris Young to have a “long, lucrative future ahead of him” and by all indications, the predictions are true! The ACM Male Vocalist nominee and Middle Tennessee native has scored five consecutive #1 singles, including recent chart-toppers “Tomorrow” and “You,” and all of these are certified Gold or Platinum by the RIAA. He won Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Single of the Year at the 2011 American Country Awards and has made nine national TV appearances since the release of his acclaimed third record, “NEON.”  Tickets and more information can be found here.

Also on sale Friday at 10:00 a.m. we have Ray LaMontagne (Nov. 29). LaMontagne is a folk rock-style American singer-songwriter who has been compared by critics to The Band, Van Morrison, Nick Drake, and Tim Buckley. He has cited Stephen Stills, Richard Manuel, and Rick Danko as his strongest musical influences since he began his career in 1999. LaMontagne has produced four successful albums, and his songs have been featured in many television shows and movies such as “Rescue Me,” “One Tree Hill,” “She’s The Man,” and “27 Dresses.” During his career, LaMontagne has won several awards, including a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album and a Pollstar Concert Industry Award for Best New Touring Artist.

Tickets for Ray LaMontagne are available here.  Also, don’t forget to enter to win a limited edition Hatch Show Print created especially for this concert here.

The evening of Friday, September 14 the Ryman welcomes Metric. The band is on tour as their fifth full-length studio album, “Synthetica,” was released in June 2012. Metric has been on the cutting-edge of rock and roll since the independent, worldwide release of “Fantasies” when, without the help of a label, the band managed to earn multiple radio hits throughout the world. The album sold over one million singles and 500,000 albums. Since then, Metric songs have been featured in two major films, “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” and “Twilight Saga: Eclipse.” Their newest album is true to the band’s sound with sonically futuristic vibes; it’s a creative culmination of music made by Metric in the last ten years. The album reads like a biography of the bands musical history, with tracks ranging from suspenseful story-telling in “Artificial Noctune” and “Synthetica” to examining the fraying social state in “Youth Without Youth.”

Tickets are still available here. Ticket buyers will receive a digital download of first single “Youth Without Youth” within a week of purchase. You can enter to win the exclusive Hatch Show Print here.

Quick preview of next week: Monday 09/17 Ben Folds Five, Tuesday 09/18 Grizzly Bear and 09/21 Umphrey’s McGee.  Check out a stream of the new Grizzly Bear album “Shields” on NPR.

Concert Announcement: Chris Young Nov. 15, 2012

Middle Tennessee native and country music star Chris Young gave his fans a special treat yesterday when he announced via exclusive video that he will make his first Nashville headlining appearance from the Mother Church of Country Music, the historic Ryman Auditorium, on November 15, 2012. The premiere headlining appearance, which includes special guests Thomas Rhett and Joanna Smith, is the first stop on Chris’ upcoming Liquid Neon Tour and adds to an already stellar year of high profile TV performances, hit singles, and awards nominations for the baritone-voiced singer. Thomas Rhett will open the show. Rhett’s self-titled debut EP hit #1 on iTunes Country Albums Chart.

 

 

Tickets go on sale on Friday, September 14th at 10AM Central and are available via the Ryman box office, ryman.com, Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-745-3000.

While Young has played the Ryman as part of the Grand Ole Opry, this historic show will mark his headlining debut on the celebrated stage. Born and raised in Murfreesboro, this momentous occasion holds a special place in the heart of this middle Tennessee native.

 

“The first time I set foot on the Ryman stage was an unbelievable experience,” says Young. “I am so grateful for the support of my hometown crowd all of these years and saying I can’t wait for this show is an obvious understatement.”
