“A special place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

This is by far our favorite venue to attend a concert, and we attend a lot. There is no doubt that in the world of music, the Ryman holds a special place for many with a history like few other venues. Each time have attended, the artists themselves are moved to be on a stage that has been shared by many musical legends. That emotion is reflected in their performances and there is special energy in the room. Seating is wooden church pews and there are a few poor visibility spots with pillars on the lower floor but for most part, there is not a bad seat in the Ryman. The acoustics are amazing and if you get a chance to see an artist you love perform there, take it!

“Fantastic Music Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

I've seen dozens of musicians and artists perform at the Ryman and I have always thoroughly enjoyed it. The place has a rich history and is absolutely beautiful. The only negative aspect of the Ryman is the interior layout on the bottom floor. There are a series of beams that are used to hold up the balcony. These beams can obstruct the view for some audience members and can spoil a good show. I always make sure that my seats are not behind these beams! Great venue, great bookings, historic and lovely.

“What a Place in C&W Music History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

This is a must see when in Nashville. Pretty well where every major country and western star got their start. Now an upgraded performance venue for all sorts of music.

“Totally Cool!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

We were not able to attend any shows while in town but did the Back Stage tour! Our guide was very, very good and so friendly...she did a great job! It was totally awesome to "walk the path" of all the entertainers that have performed there. A great piece of Nashville history!! Don't miss it!
