The Ryman Country Homecoming series collects special performances made for a three-volume set of video cassettes also aired as specials on The Nashville Network and released on CD and cassette. Performed at the legendary Ryman Auditorium and hosted by Ralph Emery and Bobby Bare, the format is somewhat similar to VH1's Storytellers series in that artists appear to tell stories and discuss their material between performances, but where that show devotes an hour to one artist, Ryman Country Homecoming selects one song apiece from a variety of artists. Vol. 2 features such classic tunes as "Faded Love," "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," "Bob Wills Is Still the King," "Always on My Mind," "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Crazy," and more.
