Owner description: The Grand Ole Opry, an American Icon and Nashville's number one attraction, is known for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences for audiences of all ages. It's where unforgettable moments happen every week...moments like the night Trace Adkins revealed a tweet inviting his pal Blake Shelton to become a member of the Opry. With country music's new stars, superstars, and legends live on stage, you never know what'll happen next. See the show that made country music famous.

“Love the Opry!”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Went to the late show of the Opry on Saturday, May 10. Charlie Daniels and Carrie Underwood were part of the show that evening. I like the different agenda of the show because it is a radio show. Seeing lots of performers for about 3 songs is refreshing. I went alone because my friends were not in town yet, but it did not matter. While waiting in line, I had many conversations with people.

Two tips for attending: 1) Go early. The parking is a nightmare. The parking lot is shared with the mall (right by the movie theater) and some that go to the hotel. Because I went on a night with two shows, the cars from the show in session were already in the lot also. 2) Be prepared to wait outside until the doors open. Nashville can get hot through the evening and seats are limited - away from the door area.

“A bucket list item”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

If you love country music, this is a must see! You have to plan in advance, we bought our tickets after we got to town, but popular shows sell out fast so plan as far in advance as possible. We were lucky and got to see Martina McBride and Phil Vasser!!! What an amazing place and a must see!!

“If you love country music, you will love the Grand Ole Opry!”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Knowing that we were going to be in Nashville, we ordered our Grand Ole Opry tickets online ahead of time. Some of the days on our vacations were already sold out but the night we were there had plenty of seats available. Park at the mall next door and walk over to the Opry. We got there plenty early which we did not have to do. They have a great gift shop at the Opry with more choices that the Opry store downtown. It is a live radio show with live commercials which was kind of fun and interesting. Of the performers, some we knew of and some we did not, but all were wonderful. Seating is comfortable and I would think that most seats are pretty good for viewing. It is definitely a place to go and to remember!

“Love the Opry”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

This was our second time at the Opry and we loved it just as much as the first. This is a fun night and anyone visiting Nashville should go at least one time. It is a live radio show and then each performer does about 3 songs. It is a fun night. We have sat in the upstairs both times and have been perfectly fine. The night we were there was the beginning of CMA fest week and there was a concert outside the venue which made for a perfect beginning.
