What the community has to say about Ryman Auditorium

Information about this business (5)

Originally built as the Union Gospel Tabernacle in 1892 by Captain Tom G. Ryman, this National Historic Landmark and Mother Church of Country Music is a Nashville icon. Most famous former home of the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman is open for tours during the day and hosts concerts and events at night.

The building was recently honored as Pollstar Magazine's Theatre of the Year for a third time...

The Ryman Auditorium first opened its doors in 1892 as a vision of Captain Thomas G. Ryman. With the coming of the Grand Ole Opry show in 1943, the Ryman found its identity as the Mother Church of Country Music. In 1974, the Opry moved to its current home by the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center and left the Ryman vacant. It was not until twenty years later in 1994 that the Ryman...

Jill Brown says: My definition of training is: "making your MIND comfortable with the fact that your BODY is going to be a little uncomfortable". People who don't like to exercise usually just don't like to be uncomfortable, but getting out of our comfort zones – mentally or physically – is where positive change happens. Nobody improves while sitting under a warm fuzzy blanket. My specialty is...

Opened in 1892 as the The Union Gospel Tabernacle and was the original home of the Grand Ole Opry beginning in '43. If you catch a show, don't be surprised if the artist performs A Capella or if you get hushed for talking during a slow song. Grab your tickets, a beer, and let the blazer-clad usher seat you to your church pew. Prepare to be blown away by the acoustics alone. Drop by anytime from...

If you're as enamored of music history as I am, you could devote several hours to a self-guided tour of this National Historic Landmark, where you're free to stand onstage -- even belt out a few bars if the spirit moves you -- or sit in the hardwood "pews," and wander the halls upstairs and down, looking at memorabilia in glass showcases. However, the typical tourist may be satisfied with a...

Saw Rodrigo y Gabriela and this was the perfect venue for them!!. Acoustics are amazing and not a bad seat on the house (aside from those clearly marked "obstructed view"). Seating is old church benches so prepare for a little discomfort. However generally the shows are so good you don't even notice. Tip: don't stress over where you sit. Anywhere...

If you love a band, see them at the Ryman

Beyond the history of the place, this is the best concert venue you can ask for. Intimate, comfortable and historic.

Tips about this business (1)

Parking

The Ryman lot gets crowded, so scout out parking on your way in. Try the Church Street parking garage less than two blocks away.
