The seating is all good except when you have people around you who think they are part of the show. It was a once in a lifetime experience for us-wouldn't go back. Veterans Day was a very patriotic show.

We've been first time in Nashville and the Opry at the Ryman shows are a must see and rightly so, had a fund 3 hours of all sorts of country music and nice bands in a classic setting, will always return.

Let me start by saying that we did the self-guided tour because the guided tours were all booked. AND we did not see a show here....so my review is based on just doing the tour on our own. We stopped at the Ryman after we left the Country Music Hall of Fame. It was a short walk over to the... More

Don't miss this! Be sure to attend a show as well as self guided tour. Seats anywhere in the balcony as well as center stage lower level are excellent...but there is absolutely nowhere where you can't easily see the stage! Performances are run like an old radio program...loved it!

Great place for a concert - all seats are great. Also stopped there on another tour and learned the history of the building - very informative.

I'm not going to include the adverts in my rating as I'd rather pretend their constant irritating and overbearing presence did not happen!!! They ruined what would have been a beautiful evening but if I ignore the ads the whole experience was amazing... Every act great and varied. I'm not a huge country fan but found every act talented and... More

This is the best acoustic hall maybe in the world. Bands sound better here than on any other stage, and they mention it often. Seats are old church pews, bring a seat cushion for long shows.

Went to Opry performance, which is live radio show. Despite the expensive tickets, a ton of time is devoted to "commercials" for the sponsors. We were there to see "Deacon Claybourne" perform. He was great, but I think he only did 2 songs. The rest of the performances were by people we hadn't ever heard of and didn't really appreciate... More

One day and night in Nashville - what to see, where to go, what to eat? We thought we would walk about and peeked into the Ryman only to learn there would be a Christmas benefit for kids that same evening with Charlie Daniels headlining. Had to go, regardless of the nose-bleed tickets (or so we thought!). We landed six... More

Unless you are a huge country music history buff, skip this site. The information provided was sparse and not all that interesting.
