Esteemed and acclaimed Grammy Award-winning guitarist TOMMY EMMANUEL today announced the May 19 release date of LIVE! AT THE RYMAN (via CPG Sounds). Filled with his complex fingerstyle technique and energetic performances, the album captures a special night of music in Nashville, TN on February 27, 2016 at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

LIVE! AT THE RYMAN highlights EMMANUEL'S fervor as a master guitarist and also encapsulates a landmark moment for the musician as he is joined on stage by Steve Wariner and John Knowles, the only other two living CGPs (Certified Guitar Players: the honor and moniker Chet Atkins assigned not only to himself but four other guitarists he admired and felt contributed to the legacy of guitar playing) for a performance of "San Antonio Stroll." GuitarWorld.com has premiered the performance video of that special moment--the only time all three living CGPs shared the stage. You can click here to watch.

"It was an unforgettable experience playing my first solo show at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville," says TOMMY EMMANUEL. "I have grown up listening to the music and artists that made those walls famous throughout the world and it was an honor to play on that stage. The night was a lifetime goal of mine and it was made that much more special with the appearance of my two good friends and fellow 'CGPs,' Steve Wariner and John Knowles. I'm so thrilled that we filmed and recorded the show, as John, Steve and I had never collaborated together before and this made the night even more special. The sold-out crowd just about lifted the roof off the hall and we all gave it our best! The spirit of Chet Atkins surrounded us three with love, peace and mojo! I hope those who hear this recording will be uplifted and feel the love we felt for the people who poured their joy into the Ryman Auditorium that February night!"

TOMMY EMMANUEL will be touring across North America starting May 4 in Lafayette, LA for a sold-out headlining performance at the Acadiana Center for the Arts, followed by shows filling out his itinerary through the fall. Mixed in between his own shows, EMMANUEL will also be performing at various festivals including the Malibu Guitar Festival, Vancouver International Jazz Festival, TD Victoria International JazzFest and California WorldFest, among others.
