The Wolf Brothers (Bob Weir, Jay Lane, Don Was) stopped in at the Ryman Auditorium to pay homage at the “Mother Church” of Americana. Ever since receiving the 2016 Americana Lifetime achievement award Nashville seems to be a special spot for Bob. As Bob said then in his acceptance speech....”You take musical traditions from England, Ireland, Scotland, Spain a little bit, a little bit from France, and blend them together with a rich variety of African musical traditions, and stir it up. You let is simmer for 200 to 300 years and see what happens. This could only happen in a new land. Physically, culturally, and spiritually. That place was and is America.” It was very appropriate to have some special guests that are prominent artists in the Americana genre, Margo Price, John Oates, and Buddy Miller to join in to make it a very special evening.

Review and Photos by Jeremy Rickman of JKR Photography

In 1964 Lynyrd Skynyrd popularized what was to be Southern Rock. Their music helped define the 1970's and sold over 28 million records. Among their biggest hits, "Sweet Home Alabama", "Simple Man", "That Smell", and "Free Bird" just to name a few. Tragedy Struck of course in 1977 and the Last of the Street Survivors founding member Gary Rossington and former member Rickey Medlocke and younger brother of Ronnie Van Zant, Johnny Van Zant are touring for the last time. They many be stepping out of the spotlight however their music will live on forever.
