BRISTOL, Tenn./Va. (WJHL) — Tanya Tucker will be among other headliners for the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion 2022, according to a release from the Birthplace of County Music Thursday.
Event leaders detailed that other second-round lineup headliners will include Del McCoury Band and Asleep at the Wheel during the Sept. 9-11 music festival in downtown Bristol.
This announcement follows after Tucker had to cancel her headline last year due to non-COVID-19-related matters.
“Tanya very much wanted to be here last year, but was unable to join us due to travel issues,” said Leah Ross, the executive director of advancement for the Birthplace of Country Music. “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 Roseanne Cash, another iconic figure in country music.”
Other artists announced in the latest rollout for the festival include Willie Watson, Nicki Bluhm and Miko Marks. Rosanne Cash, JJ Grey & Mofro, Briston Maroney and Katie Pruitt were among the first-round headliners announced in January.
