Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman LineupThe annual series has taken place for more than two decades, featuring the very best in bluegrass. CMA Air Personality of the Year award winner Eddie Stubbs will once again host each shows in this year's series.

Especially important to the history of the Ryman is its significant role in the history of bluegrass music. Although Bill Monroe had been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1939, it wasn't until a Saturday night in December of 1945 when bluegrass music as we know it today was born when a twenty-one year old young man by the name of Earl Scruggs stepped up to the WSM microphone on the Ryman stage playing the five-string banjo with a three-finger roll. This was the final ingredient in what we now know as bluegrass music.

The inaugural Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman series took place in 1994 at the then newly renovated Ryman Auditorium. The first show featured the father of bluegrass himself, Bill Monroe, and the angelic Alison Krauss. Over the last twenty plus years, the series has become a Nashville summertime tradition as it regularly presents the biggest names in bluegrass on the very stage where the genre was born back in 1945.

Each program takes place on Thursday nights at 7:30 PM at the world famous Ryman auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. Tickets are just $28.50 per concert and available at http://ryman.com/bluegrass
