In addition to his shows with LRB, he is also booking shows for 2011 and 2012 as a solo act. His upcoming three-day fall tour in mid-November kicks off in Atlanta and wraps up in Asheville.
“I look forward taking my solo show to many listening rooms and venues around the country. It will be different from the shows I currently do with the Lonesome River Band, as for the most part it will just be me and a guitar,” said Rickman. Playing these kinds of venues is nothing new for Brandon, and he says he really enjoys performing to audiences in close-up settings. “It’s always a lot of fun to get to do all my own stuff.”
He is going to take these opportunities to try out new songs and in his words, “see how they like them. I love to get a chance to show people the Nashville side of me.”
His solo show ranges from lighthearted original songs like I Bought Her a Dog, to powerful Gospel, and deep and soulful covers like Rain and Snow.
These Fall shows include a stop at the Red Light Café in Atlanta, GA on November 17, The Bus Pit in Kingsport, TN on November 18, and The White Horse Black Mountain, NC on November 19.
And here is a little bonus information: on November 11th, Brandon will be performing with the Lonesome River Band on CBS’ Late Night with David Letterman.
