Red Clay Strays Announce Headlining Show At Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium

The Red Clay Strays just announced a dream show among country music artists, which is a close second to being asked to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. The famed Ryman Auditorium in Nashville…The Mother Church of country music.

The group teased last week that an announcement was coming (possibly) with a cryptic image of the venue with no caption. The post was deleted less than an hour after sharing but commenters quickly caught on to what was coming.

Today, the band revealed that the cryptic post did mean a show under wraps, sharing that their headlining date is set for September 6th.

“Excited to announce that we will be performing at the legendary The Ryman September 6th with Pony Bradshaw and Ben Chapman! This has been a dream of ours, and we hope you can be there to be part of it.

RCS Pre-Sale starts tomorrow at 10 AM. Link in the bio to sign up now to get the pre-sale code and grab your tickets tomorrow.”

This show is beyond deserved for the Mobile, Alabama natives. With 2023 being a breakout year for the group, the boys are starting 2024 strong.

Their vintage yet modern country rock sound includes elements of Western swing with blues and deep twangs, making their sound unlike anyone else’s. The captivating music resonated with more than the country music collective when the Red Clay Strays landed on the Billboard charts for the first time with their track “Wondering Why.”

Along with making the Billboard charts, the group spent significant time on the road sharing their music with the nation. They extended the Way Too Long Tour into the new year, but with their popularity growing wildly, many shows are sold out or are on a low ticket warning.

If you have not had the chance to see the Red Clay Strays in action on stage yet, I’d highly recommend snagging tickets for The Ryman show. Every show at The Mother Church is pure electricity. From the outstanding venue acoustics to the history that fills the walls, each group that takes the stage puts on an exceptional performance.

The group has shared that they are working on a new record, so maybe we will be lucky enough to have some new tracks to belt out when they hit the Nashville stage.

The Red Clay Strays will blow the roof off this place. Congrats, boys.
