Tanya Tucker, Del McCoury Band, Asleep at the Wheel Coming to Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion 2022

Tanya Tucker, Del McCoury Band, and Asleep at the Wheel are among the second round of lineup additions headlining the 2022 Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival, which takes place Sept. 9-11 in Historic Downtown Bristol, Virginia-Tennessee. Willie Watson, Nicki Bluhm and Miko Marks are also part of the latest rollout of artists announced today.

"Tanya very much wanted to be here last year, but was unable to join us due to travel issues," said Leah Ross, executive director of advancement for the Birthplace of Country Music, the parent nonprofit of the festival, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, and WBCM Radio Bristol. "It's serendipitous that she'll perform in Bristol as we celebrate the 95th anniversary of the 1927 Bristol Sessions and the same year as Rosanne Cash, another iconic figure in country music."
Rosanne Cash, JJ Grey & Mofro, Briston Maroney and Katie Pruitt were among the artists announced back in January. More of the lineup will be revealed late March.
