Ryman Launches First-Ever Livestream Concert Series

Its first livestream concert series 'Live at the Ryman' will bring exclusive performances from the Ryman stage to you.

Ryman Auditorium is launching its first-ever livestream concert series Live at the Ryman, bringing exclusive livestream performances to fans at home.

The six-week, Friday night livestream experience kicks off tonight, Aug. 14 with for KING & COUNTRY. The series continues with Cam, Chris Janson, Scotty McCreery, Brett Young and Old Crow Medicine Show. Artists will perform full live sets on stage at Ryman Auditorium. Tickets are $10.

Developed by Opry Entertainment with input from the company’s official wellness advisor, Vanderbilt Health, Live at the Ryman is designed to allow fans from across the country and around the world to experience live music from home while also safely and responsibly welcoming back a limited number of guests to experience the series in person as soon as local health regulations permit. The series will launch first via livestream and expand to incorporate a small, socially-distanced audience in accordance with local health ordinances.

“This unique live music experience represents the next step in our commitment to doing things the right way while also creating a repeatable model that will allow artists and fans to connect during this bridge period until a vaccine or treatment for COVID-19 is available,” said chairman and CEO of Ryman Hospitality Properties Colin Reed said in a press release. 

Each concert in the series will be produced by the same team that has produced the weekly Saturday live broadcast of the Grand Ole Opry since the early days of the pandemic when all events with a live audience were suspended. Live at the Ryman will use the Mandolin livestream platform for the six-week series, giving fans at home access to a front row seat.

“Both fans and artists are eager to once again feel the energy and excitement that concert venues foster, but we must prioritize health and safety as we reimagine live entertainment today,” said President of Opry Entertainment Group Scott Bailey in the same release. “Our team has developed a turn-key way for artists to connect directly with their fans. We hope that this series will be the first of many shows to use this model in the months ahead.”

Livestream ticket prices begin at $10 with optional VIP add-ons. Six-week series passes for the livestreams begin at $50. Exclusive Live at the Ryman merchandise — including limited edition custom Hatch print posters, t-shirts and more will be available for purchase in advance online to commemorate the landmark series.
