Ryman Auditorium is the home of the Grand Ole Opry. It is owned and run by Ryman Hospitality Properties. The auditorium tells an extraordinary story of unparalleled entertainment history. Thomas G. Ryman found redemption in evangelist Reverend Sam Jones. To honour the reverend and his words, Thomas builds a great tabernacle for him.
Thomas Ryman was a river boat captain and businessman and owned several saloons. Architect Hugh Cathcart Thompson designed the building keeping in mind why he was constructing this. The Grand Ole Opry was open for broadcasts from 1943 until 1974. After this the Opry built a larger venue at the Opryland USA theme park. Though the Opry moved, fans still visited the Ryman Auditorium to see the famous stage. Major motion pictures were filmed on location at the auditorium. Visitors find themselves sitting in pews which is a reminder of how it was as a house of worship.
A visit to the Ryman Auditorium will tell you why so many performers were attracted to this place throughout history. It is a well-seasoned hall like an antique instrument, with perfection resonating within. The Ryman’s acoustics are the finest in the world. It is home to all genres of musicians.

Ryman Auditorium, Nashville Reviews - Write a Review
It was great to see the birthplace of Country music. The live program was great! The host (from WSM) and announcer kept us engaged. The variety of performers was perfect and awesome. Sing-along was fun. Only issue, wife wished there was another bathroom. Definitely would do again!
Beautiful venue, it's background as a church designed to carry loud southern hymns mean the acoustics in a concert setting are superb. The drinks are ridiculously overpriced but that's standard for a venue. The small size leads to a very intimate setting meaning even if you've paid for cheap seats you've got a great view and you'll be way closer than you would be in a stadium setting.
It was excellent! We got our call from someone involved in ticket sales. Purchase those they offered us,very good seats. Ushers & ticket personnel very helpful in getting us to our seats. Concert was excellent also. Great facilities to preform in,& to hear the music. We'll be back again!
Loved this visit and the tour. Definitely pay the extra 10 bucks for the backstage/dressing room guided tour. It is worth it, and you get to see and learn some great stuff.
Amazing venue. Historical, reverent, and rockin'. We had side seats for a concert, which were fairly pricey, though cheaper than some better seats. (130/ticket). The disappointing thing was the sound. There are speakers pointing at the sides of the auditorium, but didn't seem to be on. We were only hearing an echo off the back wall (I guess). Couldn't hear anything but the bass (drum and guitar) and hints of the lead. I walked around back and heard the full amazing sound. Real bummer.
