Dwight Yoakam will headline Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on Friday, April 12th. This marks his return to the Mother Church of Country Music’s sacred stage for the first time since 2005.
“The Ryman is one of a handful of places in the world, that from the moment you step inside, you can feel that you have entered a hallowed chamber occupied by the essence of the great,” said Yoakam, who is currently touring in support of country’s most critically-acclaimed album of 2012, 3 Pears. The Lone Bellow, one of the most talked about new bands this year, is set to open.
Tickets go on sale Friday, February 8th at 10:00 AM via the Ryman box office, ryman.com, or by calling 800-745-3000.
Dwight has been included in more critics’ year-end lists in 2012 than any other country artist. In addition, 3 Pears holds the record for the most weeks at #1 (eight) at Americana radio. Here’s a sample of other praise for 3 Pears, which marks Yoakam’s 26th studio album and is his highest-charting debut on the Billboard 200 and Billboard Country Albums charts.
