After announcing his sophomore album, White Buffalo, Ian Munsick has unveiled his first headline show at the mother church of country, the Ryman Auditorium.
White Buffalo is set to be released on April 7, with Munsick having recently dropped ‘River Run’, which will feature on the record alongside fellow singles, ‘More Than Me’, ‘Horses and Weed’ and the Cody Johnson-assisted ‘Long Live Cowgirls’.
Ian Munsick will be bringing his refreshing, Wyoming-inspired sound to the Ryman on May 16.
The set will comprise all eighteen tracks from White Buffalo, with audience members getting a prized first listen of the new album.
Munsick has carved out his own patch of territory in country music, through his celebration of a traditional-leaning, fiddle-driven sound that harks back to the Old West, infused with an innovative, genre-blending twist.
As part of the Ryman announcement, Munsick underlined his excitement at the prospect of making his debut at the iconic venue: “If there’s one building that embodies the spirit of country music, it’s the Ryman”.
The singer-songwriter went on to recall his own memories of attending the Ryman as a child: “I remember when I visited Nashville for the first time, my parents took me to see the Grand Ole Opry and it just so happened to be hosted at the Ryman that night.
Watching Ricky Skaggs burn down the auditorium with Kentucky Thunder left me shook. 12 years later, I plan on doing the same thing, but this time, it’ll be Wyoming style”.
Anybody that misses the chance to see Munsick at the Ryman will have further opportunities to see the Wyoming crooner on his Long Live Cowgirls tour, which kicks off on January 20 in New Braunfels, Texas.
Munsick will then play at the legendary Billy Bob's Texas on January 21, before performing across a variety of states including Florida, North Carolina and more. The run will conclude on April 28 at Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California.
But for Ian Munsick, at the heart of those dates lies his eagerly anticipated Ryman debut: “Playing my new album White Buffalo front to back for the very first time on the most legendary stage in country music is bound to be an unforgettable night”.
