So sad that this show was a waste of time and talent. We went to the Carolina Opry show the night before (we have seen this before and it's terrific). This is a different show (60,70, 80's music) with the same performers. The choice of music was horrible. This was a great era for music and they chose the worst,... More

We enjoyed the performance, the music that went with the show, and the Theater itself was really nice. Would have given the show a higher rating, but it wasn't very long. All... More

What a fantastic show!! The Carolina Opry has comfortable seating and a fantastic show. After recently seeing the other "One"...I have to say this beats the other show hands down. Over all the show was jam packed with lots and lots of talent, it flowed nicely, the seats were spacious and comfortable. Left you smiling and feeling like you got... More

A group of friends and I recently visited TCO, and we saw the main Carolina Opry show. This show was not at all what we expected it to be, as we had high expectations going into it. This event did encompass several different types of music, and the song choices were extremely uninteresting. They played more new country music, and... More

The performers are extremely talented. This is a professional production with a live band....no canned music. There is a variety of music, but mostly country, without the "twang". The show also included the "All That" cloggers which we thoroughly enjoyed. They've competed in several television competitions. There was a comedian. He was hilarious and provided a good quick break from... More

We saw Time Warp musical review of the 60's, 70's and 80's. I was very impressed with the talent of the cast and the variety of talents that they had. The comedian was very funny and the skit with Cheech and Chong hilarious. I would definitely go again. The only downside was being hit up in the lobby fora time... More

This show was better than a show we went to at Opryland. The show had wonderful singers, musicians and comedians and was worth every cent. This is a professional show that sweeps country, bluegrass, new music and more. I will go again and again. They did a wonderful tribute to us veterans and America.

Thank Rick M
