Country Music's Most Famous Stage

The radio show that made country music famous, beginning with its first broadcast in 1925, still entertains lovers of any musical genre. The weekly broadcast and performance offers a fast-moving, rotating cast of musicians performing onstage. Membership in the Opry has included legends like Hank Williams and Patsy Cline, and it continues to be a top honor for musicians today. The Opry moved from the Ryman Auditorium downtown in 1974 to this purpose-built theater. Though you won't find much else in the area, a trek to the Opry is a Nashville tradition.

Take a backstage tour of the Opry

What better way to experience the Grand Ole Opry than by taking a sneak peak behind the scenes. Look out for the artist's post boxes and the separate themed dressing rooms. You never know who you might meet either. We bumped into Lauren Alaina

The Show that Made Country Music Famous

The Grand Ole Opry is a live weekly concert and radio broadcast (the longest running in US history), dedicated to honoring country music and its history. Every once in a while, they'll let bluegrass, folk, or gospel musicians share the stage, but really, people come here to listen to the country greats. Over the years, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Carrie Underwood, and Garth Brooks have performed here...and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

The Grand Ole Opry also had its curious share of non-country performers: President Nixon, Kevin Costner, Jack Black, Kevin Bacon, and many more.

It's an institution, and its highly coveted membership remains one of country music's crowning achievements.

Tickets range from $35-$75.
