Young bluegrass phenom Billy Strings played two sold out shows this past weekend at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. This is a 20,000 seat venue, and ticket demand was so strong that a third show was added for Sunday at the Ryman Auditorium.

This Billy String thing is a legit sensation.

Billy’s management shared some photos from Saturday night’s show, taken by Jesse Faatz. If you think bluegrass can’t be marketed to a larger mainstream audience, check out the crowd shots.
