I went there with a friend and the tour was great! Our guide led us in song and we were told, "Now you can say you sang on the stage of "The grand ole' opry." That got some laughs. If you like country music and even if you don't, it's nice.

We have been to the Ryman several times for shows but must say that "Sam's Place", hosted by Steven Curtis Chapman, was a fantastic evening of great Christian music! So glad that we found out about this special music series in time to get tickets.

Another must see place while in Nashville. Amazing at how much history to so much great talent is in this city and the birthplace of so many acts was here at the Ryman. This and Studio B are must see places for music history lovers. I would highly recommend seeing a performance at the Ryman, the sound in this place... More

We saw Lee Brice in concert at The Ryman on Feb. 23...what a beautiful location for a concert! The acoustics were great and the intimate seating made for a WOW experience. BUYER BEWARE about purchasing tickets. Be sure to go to the Ryman.com website or Ticketmaster ONLY! We purchased tickets from another vendor and only learned that we were over... More

I have seen quite a handful of concerts in this venue, and it is one of my favorites in the country. No seat is a bad seat, unless you're under the balcony. In March, we went to a show, and above us was a constant leak. The staff happily moved us to the SECOND ROW of the show and gave... More

About the only thing to see was the stage of the former grand ole opry. There we some dresses and other designer costumes that had been worn by some of the entertainers who had performed there, but overall I did not feel it was worth the $15.00 price of admission.

I've actually toured the Ryman several times and seen a number of concerts there during my frequent visits to Nashville. It is without a doubt my favorite building in Nashville and in my opinion the very best indoor concert venue in the country. I myself am not a country music fan, but you just can't help but be taken in... More

Love this historic building and got to see Josh Turner and Kristian Bush from Sugarland! The sound in this venue is absolutely amazing and it was amazing to visit the Mother Church of Country Music!

Great entertainment - so much fun to attend a concert there - John Millencamp. So neat to be in the original Grand Ole Opry.
