“Home of the Longest Running Radio Show”
The Grand Ole Opry, an American icon and Nashville, Tennessee’s number-one attraction, is world-famous for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences for audiences of all ages. The Grand Ole Opry promotes the music of everyone from senior citizens Jimmy Dickens and Jean Shepard to hotshot youngsters Dierks Bentley, Trace Adkins and Brad Paisley. This multi-generational approach has served the show well for more than 80 years. It is one reason why the Opry can say with pride that it is "The Show That Made Country Music Famous."
This is a great building and I am sure the shows leaving lasting memories. Had to wait to get on the tour which started at noon. Like most tourist things they take a photo that you can buy. Video provides brief history. Tour runs through studio, dressing rooms and brief glimpse of the auditorium. Tour group was kind of large so squeezing around to view or take pictures could result in being left behind or not hearing the guide's explanation. Some of the support staff could have been more pleasant, especially those working around the stage. At $20 per person for the 30 minute tour, our group was a quick $1,000+. Even ran into the next group which was just as large. We are not just tourists wanting to see the sights, we are customers buying merchandise. SMILE
That completely sums it up. It's a must see.
You can't go to Nashville without visiting the Grand Ole Opry! We watched a show and had 2nd row seats because we booked early, but the cost was still a great price! Great music as always! Also enjoyed how all the artists sang together like they were having a jam session like old times with old friends! very down to earth!
We went to a show at the Opry, which was fun (and a true radio show)! We did not get to do the tour. The area around the Opry is tourist friendly - a lot of shopping, aquarium, showboat, etc.
Once again, I don't especially like country music, so the tour and the show weren't my favorite parts of Nashville. If you're not a country music fan, check out the Country Music Hall of Fame instead.
We were the last tour, so not sure if they went faster than usual. I wanted to be able to read and really look at everything in the cases, but I could hardly snap a picture before we were on to the next thing. It was great, however, to be allowed into Roy Mcuff's dressing room and onstage. I enjoyed that thoroughly.
Didn't stay to catch a show but did take the tour. It's such an iconic American building that if you get the chance you've got to visit. The tour guides were great giving the history of the building and the musicians that have played there. Awesome.
Tour was interesting. Wish I was able to see a show, but they only play 4 of the 7 nights.
We didn't have time to do the tour before closing time but the courtyard out front is worth a quick stop to stretch the legs. The area has a lot of shopping.
Unlike a “regular” concert with an opening band and a featured guest, there are many short sets at the Opry. When we visited there were 10 performers. Each group of performers played two songs – except the feature guest, who played three songs.
