If you’re a country music fan and/or an aspiring country music star, then you know there’s no place like Ryman Auditorium. The truth is that it’s one of the most coveted places in country music history, and it’s perhaps best known as the home of the Grand Ole Opry. There, from 1943 until 1974, country music history was made again and again. Today, music legends like Amy Grant and Vince Gill perform regularly. The Opry at the Ryman show is also held there, where some of country music artists such as Little Big Town, Craig Morgan, and many, many others take the stage.
As you can imagine, walking into Ryman Auditorium is a hallowed experience. You can feel the electricity in the air, the soul of the legends who’ve performed there before, and the anticipation of the next great artist to take the stage. Taking the stage is the only way this experience could possibly get any more exciting!
This beautiful auditorium is elaborately built, offering an architecture and charm that wins over its guests before shows start. For her role in the history of country music, the museum is a National Historic Landmark. Its rich history includes timeless performances from Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, Earl Scruggs, Waylon Jennings, and other country music greats.
