Grand Ole Opry

2804 Opryland Drive

The six-foot circle of dark, oak wood in the Opry House stage is shiny but clearly well worn. Cut from the stage of the Opry's famous former home, the Ryman Auditorium, this circle gives newcomers and veterans alike the opportunity to sing on the same spot that once supported Uncle Dave Macon, Ernest Tubb, Patsy Cline, and others.
"That circle is the most magical thing when you're a performer," says Brad Paisley, "to stand there and get to sing on those same boards that probably still contain dust from Hank Williams' boots."

Many things about the Opry have changed over the years - its members, the sound of its music, even its home. But there's always that oak-solid center to remind every singer or musician who steps inside that they take part in something much larger than themselves, that wherever they go they have a connection to the legends and the giants who came before them.

As that wooden circle is the heart of the stage, the Opry's heart is its music and its members - a broad scope of styles by a wide range of artists.

"The Grand Ole Opry celebrates country music's diversity," says Opry general manager Pete Fisher. "In addition, the Opry presents the many generations of artists who have formed country music's legacy and continue to forge its future course."

Great venue, not a bad seat in the place that we could see and we were seated at far top of upper mezzanine. Entertainment was great, not familiar with all/most! First time to Grand Ole Opry and not necessarily Country Music followers, but wanted to see an authentic show and this place delivers! Had dinner prior to the event, so no comments on food or drinks there. Seating tight with a packed house, but worth the trip. Highly recommend, when in Nashville! Nostalgic from childhood memories and current with respect to all military and first responders. Very American event being a mid-westerner most of my life.

We took at 10am tour. It was interesting! I enjoyed learning the history and how it works for Opry members. We aren’t huge country fans, but you could ‘feel’ the importance of it all. We took a pick on the stage. Standing on the original stages wood circle was cool knowing icons past and present stood there too.

Great tour. I'm not big time county music follower, but this was a worthwhile tour. Wife does like country.... And she LOVED it. Wish we had more time to actually see the Opry, rather than just take a tour... Didn't fit our schedule If your going to be in the area, call about tickets. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house.... i.e. Would not be concerned about any lower cost tickets

I took my wife to the Opry for her birthday. We did the VIP backstage tour. Great experience. We toured the dressing rooms, green room, and were at the back of the stage as the curtain rose for the first performance which was an incredible experience. We had a professional photo taken while back stage and were guided to our seats for the rest of the performances. Great show! Worth the price.

Very good family entertainment for anyone old or young enough to sit and enjoy. Pews were very comfortable. We sat very stage right & enjoyed our stage & big screen views very much. Sound was amazing. Musicians & entertainers were very polished & respectful of their audience.
