Grand Ole Opry
Highlights / General details
The Grand Ole Opry is the show that made country music famous. The Opry features a dynamic line-up of new stars, superstars, and legends of country music. Unlike a typical concert, the Opry presents eight or more artists on each show, giving the audience a sample of each artist's musical style. Only the Opry... there's nothing quite like it anywhere else!
What began as a simple radio broadcast in 1925 is today a live entertainment phenomenon. Dedicated to honoring country music’s rich history and dynamic present, the Grand Ole Opry showcases a mix of country legends and the contemporary chart-toppers who have followed in their footsteps. The 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.
It’s been called the “home of American music” and “country’s most famous stage.” Every year, hundreds of thousands of people make pilgrimages across town or around the world to the Grand Ole Opry to see the show live. Millions more tune in to Opry broadcasts via a mobile app, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Nashville’s 650 AM WSM, and on opry.com and wsmonline.com.
The show that made country music famous returns to its most famous former home, the Ryman Auditorium, for limited engagements in downtown Nashville.
Backstage Post-Show Tour:
Now you can take the tour right after the world-famous Grand Ole Opry show! After you see the show - see what it's like behind the scenes! Walk in the footsteps of country music's superstars and get an exclusive look at what happens on the other side of the curtain of the show that made country music famous - right after the show ends! This tour is available on nights when there is only one Grand Ole Opry show.
You'll visit the artist entrance where everyone has walked in for the show earlier that night, and you may even have the chance to step on stage and into the famed wooden circle just as a parade of artists have done a few minutes earlier.
You'll also get a glimpse of some of the Opry's 18 dressing rooms, each uniquely themed to tell part of the Opry story Darius and Opry announcer Bill Cody will share via videos. Post-show tours often also make a stop in Studio A, a live television studio and former home of HEE HAW. After you take in an Opry performance, let us officially say "Welcome to the Family!"
