Ryan Adams Album CoversRyan played his last show with The Cardinals at the Fox Theatre here in Atlanta on March 20, 2009. Drummer Brad Pemberton is quoted as saying, “Everyone was a bit fried, so it was the right time to step back for a minute. I encouraged Ryan to go and get married, and have a life and find some peace; the guy hasn’t really slowed down in ten years, and he needed it as much as we did.” He married Mandy that month in Savannah, Georgia.
