According to a post on the Ryman Auditorium's blog, the Mother Church will be replacing its historic stage — a stage that has hosted legends including Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young and, as contributor Adam Gold calls them, "ROFL-legends" The Fray, Adam Lambert, Kid Rock, Fred Thompson, Jesco the Dancing Outlaw and Killer Beaz — in the coming weeks. Seeing as how the stage was installed about 61 years ago, a half-century-plus worth of wear and tear have made the rebuild necessary.
