Warner Music Nashville’s Ian Munsick will “bring the west to the rest” on one of the most historic stages in all of country music: the Grand Ole Opry. Munsick has been invited to make his Opry debut on Saturday, October 23. With more than 100 million global streams, fans across the world have already welcomed his Rocky Mountain sound. He continues to sell out headlining tour dates and is currently traveling the nation alongside acclaimed entertainer Cody Johnson.
Munsick introduced himself as an independent artist in 2017 with a self-titled EP, winning iHeartRadio’s Rocky Mountain Song of the Year with “Horses Are Faster.” After signing with Warner Music Nashville last year, the Wyoming native released his full-length debut, Coyote Cry, this spring (listen HERE). Flagship track “Long Haul” served as a thesis for the project, with People calling it “a delicious look into his adoration for the West” that showcased his “heart-tugging tenor voice and… marvelous sense of melody” (MusicRow). Check out a special, recently released acoustic version of the track, which twice entered Spotify’s all-genre US Viral 50 chart, HERE.
The singer / songwriter describes Coyote Cry as a firm handshake of the cowboy and the hippy, the traditional and the contemporary… and everything in between. Born an audiophile and bred a multi-instrumentalist, Munsick co-produced each of the album’s 10 “self-penned songs that conjure equal parts epic adventure and down-to-earth wisdom” (American Songwriter). Opry attendees and radio listeners can expect to experience his “riveting” tenor (Rolling Stone) and western-influenced, pop-laced country “rooted in the rugged landscape of his home” (Sounds Like Nashville).
