Music Saves Mountains, Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, TN
Great intimate setting for Dave. When he was being introduced, they said he was the reason the show sold out as quickly as it did! My wife and I had a great time.
What an amazing show!!all though it was only four songs the Ryman really did justice to Daves Voice and the crowd was deffinately into it!! Would give anything for a full band show at the Ryman,Pumped for summer tour!!
Really cool setting of course! Everyone played with the house band except Dave- he played solo acoustic and then came back at the end and sang 1 song with everyone in attendance. Good time for a good cause!
rye whiskey sure loosens up the ladies
Great night of music! Dave's performance was solid and his voice was in good shape. DDTW, You and Me, and Rye Whiskey were all flawless. So Damn Lucky was an odd song choice...especially to close out his set...did not fit very well. Surprised that Dave did not duet with Emmylou. The Ryman is a fantastic place to experience music with exceptional acoustics.
Other highlights of the evening:
- Emmylou opening with "One of these Days"
- Patti Loveless cover of Ray Charles "Busted"
- Alison Kraus's two-song set
- Patty, Alison and Emmylou singing "Go to Sleep Little Baby"
- All of the women on cover of John Prine's "Paradise"
The acoustics in this venue are unlike anything I've ever experienced...Dave's set was slightly short but still great and I enjoyed every song he played. The amazing acoustics really brought out everything in his performance. The previous performers were inspirational...simply amazing. The acappella performance was amazing...I loved everything about this show. What a rare gem to see all these amazing artists in such an amazing venue like the Ryman!
Drove all the way from Cleveland to see this show and it was well worth it. The acoustics were amazing from the balcony, and Daves set was awesome.
Great to see Dave solo. Great to see him from so close. I just wish he would have played some more songs. I wish he and Emmy would have sung 'The Maker'.
