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!
