There's a musical axiom known by modern festivalgoers: whether or not you start the morning as a Band of Horses fan, if you see them play in the evening, you'll be a devotee by day's end. The Charleston-based quintet combine Southern rock warmth with indie's urgency, and lace just about every song with feelings-heavy hooks that beg to be shouted by crowds. Which is why a live release is a long time coming. Acoustic at the Ryman is due February 11 via Brown Records, and features the 2007 song below, "Detlef Schrempf," as performed at that beloved Nashville venue.

Keyboardist Ryan Monroe shared a memory from the April 2013 set: "We were getting a bear hug from the audience the entire set, so we felt the love and were surprisingly comfortable on stage. It reminded me of jamming at one of our grandparents' houses. Maybe that's why we brought out the old lamps and tables. Maybe we should have had an old man snoring in a tan corduroy recliner, watching a barely audible Braves game on an old TV with tin foil wrapped around bunny ears behind us the whole show." Maybe, but this'll do just fine, Monroe:
