The Ryman AuditoriumNashville, TN

The Grand Ole Opry show outgrew several homes between 1925 and 1943 before settling in at the Ryman Auditorium, a former Christian tabernacle in downtown Nashville. Known still as the “Mother Church of Country Music,” the painstakingly renovated Ryman is considered one of the most acoustically perfect and unique performance venues in the world. The Opry returns home to the Ryman for a few weeks each year.
