We went to this show when Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Family appeared, as well as Vince Gill and others. The songs were great, and it was fun being in the original Opry. Only downer is how expensive downtown parking is--15 to 20 dollars.

We did one of the behind the scenes tours of the Ryman - it was fantastic. Coming from someone who doesn't have much knowledge of country music history, visiting the Ryman definitely has given me a new appreciation for it. I'd highly recommend the tour - especially the backstage. It's a beautiful venue with an immense amount of music history.

Amazing atmosphere, you can feel the soul of this building the minute you enter. You were able to go around In Your own time. Not to be missed.

Great history! A staple in this town. If your into music the Ryman is a must stop. Close to Broadway so you don't have to far.

This show had great entertainers (Vince Gill was there when we attended) and the sound acoustics are great! I would love to go again and so would my husband who doesn't even like Country Music! The only negative is be sure to check which location you are going to - downtown or out at Opryland Hotel are! It was a... More

Much better than expected;HOWEVER, they need to sell two seats less per row. We were packed in like sardines. My son and I, quite literally, shared one seat. Music and entertainment was good. Refreshments good. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful!

On our trip to Nashville, we booked a tour at this awesome place and also we booked a concert at this venue. It amazed me that the Ryman was shut down for almost 20 years and was abandoned for so long. This was the original Grand Ole Opry and it was originally a church in Nashville. The history in this...

upstairs balcony seats were great. This is a very intimate setting in a well revered auditorium in Music City.....be prepared for lots of drinking and hollering, but great music acoustics

If you're a country music fan or just a history fan in general, this is legendary ground. I would love to see a live show here but none available when I was here.
