After fifteen years of touring with the beloved Hot Band, Emmylou Harris formed the Nash Ramblers, a new acoustic all-star
group, in 1990, featuring Sam Bush (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), Roy Huskey Jr. (bass), Larry Atamanuik (drums), Al Perkins
(dobro, banjo, vocals), and Jon Randall Stewart (acoustic guitar, mandolin, vocals). The band played on the road for several
months before making their Nashville debut at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) on September 28, 1990. That
concert was recorded and shelved, while another live run at the Ryman Auditorium the following spring was released as Emmylou
Harris and the Nash Ramblers At the Ryman to great acclaim, winning a Grammy and spurring public interest in saving the beloved
music hall. Now, more than thirty years later, Rhino’s James Austin has unearthed the 1990 TPAC recording and Nonesuch
releases Ramble in Music City: The Lost Concert for the first time. The TPAC set features entirely different songs from the
Ryman album and includes music by A.P. Carter, Rodney Crowell, Ruth Franks, the Louvin Brothers, Doc Pomus and Mort
Shuman, Paul Simon, and Townes Van Zandt, among others, as well as her own compositions.
Harris says of Ramble in Music City: “When James Austin, in my humble opinion, the world’s best and certainly most devoted music
archeologist, unearthed the tapes of this ‘lost’ concert, I was taken aback by their very existence, like finding some cherished
photograph misplaced so long ago the captured moment had been forgotten. Then the memories came flooding in, of the Nash
Ramblers, hot off the road from our first tour, ready to rock and bringing their usual A-game to the hometown turf.
“It only took one listen to realize not a single note was out of place or in need of repair, a truly extraordinary performance by these
gifted musicians. What a joy it was to share the stage with them.”
A thirteen-time Grammy winner and Billboard Century Award recipient, Emmylou Harris' contribution as a singer and songwriter
spans six decades. She has recorded more than thirty albums and has also contributed to countless fellow artists' recordings. In
recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008. Her most recent new
release, a collaboration with Rodney Crowell, The Traveling Kind, followed the longtime friends' first duet album, Old Yellow Moon,
which won a Best Americana Album Grammy Awards as well as two Americana Music Association Awards, for Album of the Year
and Duo/Group of the Year.
