Elvis Costello to Play The Ryman June 16



One artist we can always count on showing an annual allegiance to Nashville is Elvis Costello. Last week, we told you about Costello's forthcoming record Secret, Profane & Sugarcane--recorded with T Bone Burnett over a three-day Nashville session. Today he announced a June 16 appearance at The Ryman, during which he'll be backed by a new group of imposters called The Sugarcanes. The band features Jim Lauderdale, Jerry Douglas, Jeff Taylor, Mike Compton, Stuart Duncan & Dennis Crouch.

I've seen Costello--or as I call him, The Quentin Tarantino of rock--in various live incarnations and have never been disappointed. The man's voice has aged like wine. I'm sure the $35.50-$50.50 tickets, which go on sale this Friday, Apr. 3 at 10 a.m. here, will be worth it.
