Charley Crockett Celebrates Ryman Live Album



On November 14, 2022, Charley Crockett played his first-ever show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, a sellout which Marcus K. Dowling at the Tennessean praised as “country music’s mother church turning into a 2,500-seat honky-tonking juke joint.” On September 29, 2023, Crockett will release Live from the Ryman, a document of the raucous, celebratory evening. The full show will be available as an album as well as a beautifully shot concert film. Crockett and his ace band pulled from Crockett’s deep catalogue – 12 albums and counting – and mixed in covers from George Jones, James “Slim” Hand, Jerry Reed, T-Bone Walker and Townes Van Zandt.

“I wanted to play on that stage so badly, but I didn’t know how it would ever happen,” admits Crockett in a letter to fans about Live from the Ryman. “That’s what was running through my mind the night The Blue Drifters and I played the Ryman for the first time.”

Crockett released his last full-length album The Man From Waco – which Rolling Stone named the #2 best Country album of 2022 – last year, and the momentum he built has continued into 2023. Over a three month stretch earlier this year, Crockett made his NPR Tiny Desk debut, appeared on The Daily Show (interview + performance), and appeared on the June 2023 cover of Texas Monthly. Crockett performed at both nights of Willie Nelson’s 90th birthday celebration at the Hollywood Bowl in April, and made his Bonnaroo debut this summer.

Crockett will head out next month on his latest headline tour of Europe and the UK, and will spend most of October as direct support for Chris Stapleton at arenas and outdoor amphitheaters.  For full list of tour dates, head here.  Crockett has received 2023 Americana Honors & Awards nominations for Artist of the Year, Album of the Year (for The Man From Waco) and Song of the Year (for “I’m Just A Clown”), tied with Margo Price for most nominations this year. Winners will be announced at the 2023 Americana Honors & Awards ceremony at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN on September 20th.
