The Grand Ole Opry is the show that made country music famous. Early Opry performers such as Roy Acuff, Minnie Pearl, Ernest Tubb and Bill Monroe became musical foundations for the Opry during its years in residence at the historic Ryman Auditorium, later welcoming to the stage artists who would become entertainment icons in their own right, including Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Bill Anderson. The Opry said good-bye to the Ryman Auditorium on Friday night, March 15, 1974. The next night, President Richard Nixon joined Roy Acuff on stage at the Grand Ole Opry House. Still, they could keep in touch with the traditions of the Ryman because an eight-foot circle of hardwood was taken from the Ryman and placed center stage at the Opry House. Today the magic continues. Trace Adkins, Dierks Bentley, Vince Gill, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart, Mel Tillis and Carrie Underwood are among the stars that are part of the Opry family.
A Nashville Tennessee Attraction - Known as the "Mother Church of Country Music," the Ryman Auditorium has been one of the country's premiere concert venues for more than 100 years. Over the years, legendary country music artists--the likes of which include Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Roy Acuff and Tammy Wynette--have performed at the Ryman, as well as renowned alternative, bluegrass, blues, classical, gospel, jazz, pop, rock and folk artists, including Elvis Presley and Elvis Costello, plus James Brown and Van Morrison. A National Historic Landmark and former home of the Grand Ole Opry (1943 - 1974), The Ryman is open daily from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. For a small fee, the Gaylord Opryland offers shuttle service to and from the auditorium, which allows you and your party to enjoy a tour or to experience the magic of a concert at this most legendary venue.
