Due to High Demand, Little Big Town Adds More Dates To Ryman Residency

Everybody loves Little Big Town—not just as musicians, but as human beings. There I’ve said it. They are known in the industry as some of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet, so it’s understandable that there would be high demand to catch their recently announced residency at the Ryman—Little Big Town at the Mother Church.

Originally the group was scheduled to perform six shows during their residency—Feb. 24 and 25, May 19 and 20, Sept. 15 and 16—which marks the first time an artist or band has held a residency at the Ryman. Due to an overwhelming response, six shows was simply not enough. The band has now added three more dates—July 28-29 and Nov. 27th, with additional dates to be announced later this year.

Each show will see surprise special guests and different opening acts. Brent Cobb is scheduled for the Feb. 24 show and Ashley Monroe will open the show on Feb. 25. Tickets and special two-day packages for the newly-announced shows will go on sale Friday, February 10th at 10:00 a.m. CT via ticketmaster.com and ryman.com and will be available online only.

The kick off of Little Big Town’s residency on Feb. 24, coincides with the release of the band’s seventh studio album, The Breaker, produced by Jay Joyce. The Breaker features LBT’s current single, “Better Man,” which is currently racing up the charts.

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
