Larry Fleet has built a reputation for consistently lacing themes of faith and spirituality into his music, with his most recognisable single to date, ‘Where I Find God’, epitomising this.
It'll therefore be a tremendously special moment when the bearded crooner steps onto the stage for the first time at Nashville's ‘Mother Church’ - the iconic Ryman Auditorium.
Fleet revealed that he'd be delivering his first ever headlining performance at the iconic venue on September 22, following a stacked summer run that'll combine a number of headlining shows with a series of supporting sets as part of Parker McCollum's 2023 tour.
Speaking ahead of the announcement, Fleet emphasised his excitement at the prospect of makes his debut in front of the hallowed pews and historic stained glass windows of the Ryman.
The soulful songsmith outlined, “Every time I've been fortunate enough to play music in that room, it's been a holy experience. Being able to play our show there to a crowd of fans and friends and family – and it being our first headline show in Nashville – I just can't imagine how special it'll be. I'm hoping we'll see you in September or somewhere on the road before then, and I can't wait to tell you more about what we're up to this fall real soon”.
Fans of the Tennessee native will have perked up at Fleet's last line, with the singer-songwriter seemingly teasing a new project. Since he dropped his celebrated live project, Larry Fleet - The Live Sessions, Vol. 1, in 2022, Fleet has been relatively quiet on the new music front.
Listeners have had to make do with a smattering of sporadic singles, the most recent of which was the wistful ballad, ‘Young Buck’, which Fleet released at the start of May.
Hopefully, by the time he returns to Nashville for his headlining Ryman performance in September, Larry Fleet will have treated fans to a new EP, or maybe even - dare we say it - a full-length album.
