Not our usual style of music but great evening

Went to one of the Bluegrass Evenings, not our usual style but the bands were fantastic. Really enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to any music lovers.

Always love the Ryman-every time I visit Nashville. Self guided tour is phenomenal, backstage tour is great, & seeing the Opry or a concert there can't be beat. Love, love, love the Ryman! Well worth it!

We went to a Bluegrass Night and it was so much fun! The music was great and the place is really cool, though you sit on "church benches".. (You will probably stand at the end of the concert anyway:))

We took a guided tour of the Ryman and thoroughly enjoyed hearing the stories of the many artists that have performed there. The guide gave an excellent historical tour while keeping it fun and entertaining.

I have to start by saying I am NOT a fan of modern country music. So, when I say this place is amazing, you can take it to the bank! I had previously taken the backstage tour - jammed with history - and this time attended a show. Sitting in the pew, you really get an " if these walls... More

We did the guided tour of the Ryman and we loved it. I'm so glad we did the guided and no self guided. I think we got way more having a guide than we would have had we just did self guided. We thought our tour guide did a good job and we loved the stories she shared. It was... More
