Have A Grand Ol’ Time at the Grand Ole Opry
The Grand Ole Opry is both a Tennessee and national landmark. For more than 75 years, some of the best country music stars have graced the Opry stage for its terrific show. The Grand Ole Opry is full of surprises, and you never know when Opry members like Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley and Dierks Bently may stop by for a surprise visit. Be sure to book your seats today to have a chance to be a part of this great American tradition.
As part of the great Grand Ole Opry tradition, fans will have the opportunity to “rush the stage” to get a photo of your favorite superstars and musicians. Be sure to get a good look at the performers as they step into the dark oak circle behind the microphone. This well-worn, six-foot circle was cut from the stage of the Ryman Auditorium, the “Mother Church of Country Music,” allowing performers to stand in the same spot where Patsy Cline made history with “Crazy,” and where numerous other legends made their Opry debut.
Because you’re watching a live radio broadcast, you as an audience member get to be a part of the action. Those listening to the broadcast on WSM 650-AM will be hearing your applause and cheers. You will also get to see the radio commercials performed right in front of you on stage, and see the broadcast “disc jockey” live! There is no editing or voice enhancement at the Opry, just wholesome, old-fashioned entertainment.
Be sure to arrive early enough to explore the Opry Museum, located within the Opry Plaza. Although hours vary, the museum is open prior to the show and features great exhibits dedicated to Patsy Cline, George Jones, Marty Robbins, Little Jimmy Dickens and many, many more! There is no additional cost to tour the museum, which is designed to resemble the Nashville of yesteryear.
