Band of Horses to release live album


Acoustic at the Ryman hits shelves Feb. 11

We have to admit that we feel just a little bit of pride whenever Band of Horses gets a feature in a major entertainment magazine or plays a high-profile show — like this fall’s Southern Ground Fest. As one of Charleston biggest bands, their success is our success — or at least it feels that way to us.

Which is why we’re excited that Ben Bridwell and company have just announced a new 10-song live album to be released on Feb. 11. Titled Acoustic at the Ryman, the new collection was recorded last April at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Fans can currently listen to a live version of “Neighbor” on the band’s website and below.

In honor of their new release, Band of Horses will play 13 acoustic shows beginning on Feb. 11 in L.A. and ending appropriately enough at the Ryman on March 13. For more information, go to bandofhorses.com/tour.
