Sept 4th LIVE from the Ryman

Ryman Auditorium Launches ‘Live At The Ryman’ Livestream Experience With Scotty McCreery, Cam



Scotty McCreery: Live at the Ryman
Online Event





While the novel coronavirus has halted the touring industry for the foreseeable future, live music will return to Nashville’s revered Ryman Auditorium in August. The Mother Church of Country Music has announced a new six-week series, Live at the Ryman, which kicks off Aug. 14 via livestream with plans in place to allow an in-person audience as soon as local health regulations permit.  

Beginning Aug. 14, acts from the country and Christian community will take the stage every Friday night for six weeks. Performers include for KING & COUNTRY, Cam, Chris Janson, Scotty McCreery, Brett Young and Old Crow Medicine Show. Tickets go on sale Aug. 10 at 10 a.m CT via ryman.com. Livestream tickets begin at $10 while a six-week series pass begin at $50 with optional VIP add-ons.

After more than 20 weeks producing the Grand Ole Opry broadcast every Saturday night to no audience, Opry Entertainment began to explore what a return to Ryman Auditorium would look like as far as concert productions with the help of new livestream platform Mandolin. “We gained some learnings there, and it gave us confidence and motivation to take a look at the Ryman and figure out if we could create a business model that others can adopt and be a blueprint,” Scott Bailey, president, Opry Entertainment Group, tells me.


Live at the Ryman is a hybrid concert model developed by Opry Entertainment, with feedback from Vanderbilt Health, that will start as a livestream option and eventually expand to allow a select number of concertgoers to watch in person while socially distancing and following local health ordinances. Ultimately, the goal is figuring out how to safely bring the live audience back to the Ryman. As a result, the Ryman has modified high-touch areas including its bathrooms with touch-less upgrades like kick plates.



“We’re doing the best we can and trying to be innovative and creative during these really bizarre times right now,” Bailey says. “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.”

Scotty McCreery is scheduled to play as part of the series on Sept. 4. The country singer was the last artist to perform at Ryman Auditorium in March before concerts were canceled due to Covid-19. McCreery says he had no idea his sold-out concert at the Ryman in March would be his last show for months.


“It’s a special place with so much history,” McCreery says of the famed venue. “Every artist out there right now is wanting to be playing shows. This is normally peak season and I’m normally on the road playing a show every night so I’m missing it. I’m missing seeing the fans. We’re going to try and give them the best show we can.”

McCreery says his major concern is with his fans’ safety, but he trusts Opry Entertainment’s commitment to the health of its audience. Most of all, he thinks the Live at the Ryman series will give music fans some hope.

“We’re trying to find ways to still have live music because music is such a bridge for everybody and can be such a healing thing,” he says. “Obviously there’s a long way to go, but if we can do things safely and make sure everything is done correctly, we can still enjoy these times — as crazy as they are right now.”

Live at the Ryman Performance Schedule:

Aug. 14 – for KING & COUNTRY

Aug. 21 – Cam

Aug. 28 – Chris Janson

Sept. 4 – Scotty McCreery

Sept. 11 – Brett Young

Sept. 18 – Old Crow Medicine Show

I've got tickets for Chris and myself.....can't wait for Sept. 4 to hear Scotty's new music!....and his old music, for that matter!! 😄😍🥰

I got to watch the concert Friday night and again last night. Scotty and the band were GREAT!!!  Loved the new single and the Travis Tritt cover was awesome. When it’s just Scotty and his guitar ... h

I've always liked Cam's voice.  Very "adult" sounding, smoothe.   (and that's a good thing) Not such a screening " teen" voice.  lol

Ryman goes live

The six-week, Friday night livestream experience kicks off Aug. 14 with for KING & COUNTRY. The series continues with Cam, Chris Janson, Scotty McCreery, Brett Young and Old Crow Medicine Show. Tickets go on sale to the public this Monday, Aug. 10 at 10 a.m. CST.

'LIVE AT THE RYMAN' is a hybrid concert model developed by Opry Entertainment with input from the company's official wellness advisor, Vanderbilt Health. The series will launch first via livestream and expand to incorporate a small, socially distanced audience in accordance with local health ordinances. The Ryman did not say how many fans would be allowed.

Artists will perform full live sets on stage at Ryman Auditorium. Regulations include mandatory masks for all Ryman operations and production staff, as well as enhanced cleaning practices.

"Our company has prioritized the health and safety of our employees, customers and artists since day one of the pandemic," said Colin Reed, chairman and CEO, Ryman Hospitality Properties. "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."

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 Scott Bailey, President of Opry Entertainment Group.

September 4 & 5th is my granddaughter's wedding weekend.....rehearsal & rehearsal dinner on the evening of the 4th and wedding on the evening of the 5th.  However, I am going to purchase a ticket or two just to support Scotty and his band!  If I'm lucky I will be able to catch the last hour of the live performance.  Fingers crossed!!  Been TOO long since we've seen him!

I set up mine right after I bought tix yesterday ....dont think it makes much difference when you do it. After you set up the acct you will get an email with a confirmation from Mandolin for the show (or shows if you picked the pass for all)

Facebook preview from tonights show 4King&Country........



King & Country start around 14.50 mark and present their opening number....big production featuring their video of one of their songs with their stage performance.


Show was for 1 and 1/2 hours..bodes well for full Scotty concert


They did have a very  few family members in the balcony ,otherwise it was empty Theater.


Sound and production for streaming was excellent. 


Not my style of music ...but 'interesting' entertainment !..

I second all of Sandy's comments about last night's Mandolin/Ryman show.  It was so simple to access....and no problems with the show throughout.  No rebuffering, etc.



Wonder how many tickets were sold.  Did you just log into your account and the concert was there?

Went to my email account, clicked on the email covering the 4K&C concert.   You then clicked on the start (or open I forget which)  button...voila, you were at the opening site.  I was a few minutes early, so I basically saw promos until the start.
