Dawes Takes On Sold-Out Ryman Auditorium

Thursday, October 7, 2021 - by Carmen O'Hagen

Following the postponement of several September shows due to COVID positive cases with their tour crew, it wasn’t a sure thing Dawes' Nashville date at the Ryman would happen as planned. Luckily the packed Tennessee audience didn’t have to wait to see their favorite band.

Those shows weren’t the only thing Dawes had to delay because of COVID. Their latest album, “Good Luck with Whatever,” was completed before COVID ever hit, but they held it back until last October.

Dawes, founded by brothers Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith, is known for their contemplative Americana sounds and lyrics. For the Nashville crowd, the band debuted unreleased songs “Someone Else’s Café” and “House Parties.” They ended their show with fan favorites “Still Feel Like a Kid” and “All Your Favorite Bands.”

Nashville indie folk singer-songwriter, Erin Rae opened the show.

Dawes will spend next weekend back in Tennessee on newly announced tour stops. Saturday, Oct. 16, they will perform at The Caverns in Pelham and Sunday, Oct. 17, they will be in Knoxville.
