Brendan Benson album, Nashville show news

One of his past albums made my year-end top list, so I'm really looking forward to hearing the new material...
Brendan Benson is set to return with You Were Right, out Nov. 29 on his own Readymade Records via Thirty Tigers. Recorded at Benson’s Nashville-based Readymade Studios, some of the album’s 15 tracks premiered over the past year as part of Benson’s monthly singles series, which can be found at

The musician will celebrate the album’s release with a special Brendan Benson & Friends show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Dec. 18 featuring guest performers and collaborators with Jack White, Eric Burdon, Butch Walker, Jessie Baylin, Ken Stringfellow, Jon Auer, Cory Chisel, Willy Mason, The Howlin’ Brothers and more. 
Proceeds benefit the David Lynch Foundation, going to veterans and at-risk children in the Nashville area. Tickets are available at

Benson has produced albums for Eric Burdon & The Greenhornes, Willy Mason and Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons and has collaborated with Loretta Lynn, The White Stripes, Adele, The Stooges, Jake Bugg and many more.
Along with his solo work Benson is also a member of The Raconteurs and owns Nashville’s Readymade Studios. He founded Readymade Records in early 2012, signing Young Hines, Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons, The Lost Brothers and the Howlin’ Brothers to the label.
