I love the Ryman Auditorium. I love its history, starting off as a church and morphing into a music venue where so many legends and great artists have played.
I saw Patty Griffin at the Ryman back in 2013 for her American Kid tour. Tonight, I got the chance to see her again (with Lori McKenna as her opening act).
It was magical. Two of my favorite singer-songwriters on one stage.
I heard a lot of my old favorites as well as new songs that I will probably grow to love equally with time. Both artists define what it means to turn songwriting into a craft.
Besides, anything at the Ryman is automatically better. There’s an aura to that auditorium that is unique to that place.
I hope to get the chance to see many more shows there (including hopefully Patty Griffin again at some point).
In the mean time, I think some sleep might be in order. Good night to all of you out there in webland.
