Late in his set at @theryman, @steveearle_ said he’d stood onstage in Chicago many moons ago and told fans that all of his dreams had come true. It was in that moment, he said, that he realized he needed to find some new dreams, and find them fast. One of those second-act dreams came true Friday night when the so-called last of the hardcore troubadours, whose career has spanned 17 albums and survived all manner of slings and arrows, headlined the Ryman for the first time.
Opening the show was @luceromusic, the Memphis bar-band exemplars who were playing the Mother Church for the first time. “We’ve never played the Ryman before but this is quite a place ya’ll have got,” said frontman @benlucero74, who swigged whiskey throughout the set and joked that “you’d be nervous too if it was your first time playing the Ryman.” Get a full rundown of the show at americansongwriter.com
