Twenty-six years after her three-night stint onstage at Nashville's dark and dilapidated Ryman Auditorium helped spearhead efforts to refurbish the century-old former home of the Grand Ole Opry, Emmylou Harris and her acoustic band, the Nash Ramblers, returned to the Ryman for a sold-out show Tuesday night. Harris, now 70, and the Ryman, celebrating 125 years of live entertainment, proved they both remain vibrant and vital elements in Nashville's rich musical history.

Emmylou and The Nash Ramblers

Backed by mandolin and fiddle player Sam Bush, with Jon Randall on guitar, Al Perkins on Dobro and Larry Atamanuik on drums – just as she had been for the Grammy-winning At the Ryman album, released in January 1992, nine days before she became an official member of the Opry – Harris and her bandmates re-created that mesmerizing 1992 concert.
