Emmylou Harris & The Nash Ramblers – Guitar Town (Live At The Ryman) – Country Music Weekly


At the Ryman is a 1992 live album by Emmylou Harris and her then-newly formed acoustic backing band, The Nash Ramblers, recorded at the Ryman Auditorium, most famously known as the one-time home of the Grand Ole Opry, in Nashville, Tennessee. Harris had by this point disbanded her legendary Hot Band.
The Nash Ramblers:
Sam Bush — Fiddle, mandolin and vocals
Roy Huskey, Jr. — Double bass and vocals
Larry Atamanuik — Drums
Al Perkins — Banjo, guitar, resonator guitar and vocals
John Randall Stewart — Guitar, mandolin and vocals
Though the album received almost no airplay on commercial country radio, it charted and was critically well received. It was credited with helping renew interest in restoring the Ryman, which had essentially remained vacant since the Opry relocated to their current location in 1974.
A companion video recording of the concert was released on VHS.
