There are more musically talented people here than in any other city, and we love knowing that 98.7% of restaurant servers and administrative assistants in town could be headlining a tour next year. We know you can’t throw a belt buckle in Nashville without hitting a concert (and probably losing your pants), and maybe if you’re a long-time Nashvillian, you have forgotten how incredible that is.
That’s why we want to remind you how lucky you are to be surrounded by singers and songwriters who just want to make you happy with their music. And you know what’s better than one great artist on stage? Five great artists on stage.
The 2017 Concert for Cumberland Heights at the Ryman is an Opry-style concert with a cause, and you don’t want to miss it. The benefit is on Wednesday, October 18 at 7pm.
Here are our three reasons to get your tickets now.
Its at Mother Church
Sometimes we take for granted the rich history of the Ryman Auditorium, but once you’ve visited its hallowed walls, you’ll know why it’s every artist’s dream to perform on that stage. This place served as the home of Grand Ole Opry for decades, and even though that era has passed, the standard of performers and reverence for the building has lived on.
We’d go there to hear a kazoo concert, but thank goodness the Ryman staff has the highest standards for its performers. Speaking of performers…
Five Incredible Musicians (and One Hilarious Comedian) on One Stage
And you’ve heard all of their names. Opry-style performances bring multiple artists together to share their love for music, and The Concert for Cumberland Heights is bringing the heat with Cassadee Pope, winner of The Voice; Kristian Bush of Sugarland; Lindsay Ell, whose latest album debuted at No. 1 on the Country Albums chart; Michael Ray, whose debut album produced two No. 1 songs; and Scotty McCreery, American Idol winner. Home-grown Tennessee comedian Henry Cho, who performs regularly on the Grand Ole Opry, will bring the laughs as emcee. This lineup? 💯
