“The Ryman is hallowed ground; it had been a bucket list item for me to take that stage,” Dean shared in a statement. “It was a blessing not only playing there but also capturing that moment in a way I can revisit again and again.

“I love that I can share that memory and the energy of that crowd with the rest of the world,” he continued. “I hope the folks listening are transported to those pews and can feel the five of us giving it our all— no click, no tracks—just raw noise, running on pure adrenaline.”

Dean teased the project with a recording of his spellbinding performance of “Fearless” on the historic stage. The song first appeared on Dean’s album Greenbroke, released in 2022. Check out the live version, below.

Elsewhere on the live album are performances of “Heavens To Betsy” and unreleased show staple “1971.” Find the full track list below.

Prior to this release, Dean shared “Don’t Come Lookin,'” the fastest debut to reach No. 1 on Country Aircheck‘s chart of the year. The song’s accompanying visual earned him a nomination for the CMT Awards’ Breakthrough Video of the Year and crowned him the most-heard new artist on the Country Aircheck chart for 2022.
