Fodor's Review

A country-music shrine, the Ryman Auditorium and Museum was home to the Grand Ole Opry from 1943 to 1974 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The auditorium seats 2,000 for live performances of classical, jazz, pop, gospel, and, of course, country. Self-guided tours include photo-ops on the legendary stage, and a stroll through the museum, with its photographs and memorabilia of past Ryman Auditorium performances. Visitors may also take the backstage

tour of dressing rooms and more otherwise off-limits areas.

Have your ears tuned & your eyes awarded with the sights & sounds of the Ryman Auditorium & Museum

I grew up waking up to wsm radio and my family was so far back in the woods, we didn't get the opry by radio, until Sunday night. All joking aside. I love my home state of Tennessee and appreciate the opportunity to join in on creating a slogan that would grab attention to our (very best)! Regina Stelling
