Charley Crockett will release a special live album on September 29, recorded during his sold-out debut appearance at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium in November 2022.
In addition, fans will be able to hear live covers of Jerry Reed's ‘I Feel For You’, T-Bone Walker's ‘Travelin’ Blues’, George Jones’ ‘Between My House and Town’ and more.
The 23-song album will be accompanied by a concert film of Crockett's Ryman appearance, which the Texas maverick teased via an old-timey infomercial shared across his socials.
Speaking about the new Live From The Ryman project, Charley Crockett underlined his excitement at having captured the electricity of that November evening on record and on film.
In a lengthy letter to fans, Crockett explained, “Selling out the Ryman for the first time is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and luckily my manager came up with the idea of filming the show”.
He went on to stress how much the show meant to him and his Blue Drifters band, “As a rule, I can’t stand watching videos of myself - I don’t really know how anyone can - but I’m grateful we captured that night. The crowd was truly something else, they stood up early on in the show and never sat back down again. It’s like something otherworldly was going on. Like all those ghosts from out in the alley were up there onstage with us”.
Fans can already listen to ‘Trinity River’ and ‘Jamestown Ferry’ from Charley Crockett's upcoming project, and fans will be hoping he shares another single or two before the September 29 release date.
