Know More about this tour

Backstage Tour:
Meet your knowledgeable guide in the Grand Ole Opry to start your small-group tour of the concert hall that made country music famous. As you walk backstage, hear entertaining stories form your guide about the Opry and the country music greats who have played here since the original radio show debuted in 1925. Look at photos from key moments in the history of the Opry and snap your own photos of the artist’s entrance, where superstars and up-and-coming musicians alike make their entrance before a show.

Have the chance to walk on stage and step onto the famous wooden circle where hundreds of artists have performed. The six-foot oak wood circle was cut from the stage of the Opry's former home at the Ryman Auditorium. Legends such as Patsy Cline, Uncle Dave Macon and Ernest Tubb once performed on the same boards.

Your tour also stops in Studio A, a live television studio that once broadcast the TV show Hee Haw. Then get a glimpse of some of the artist’s dressing rooms, which were refurbished after the Nashville flood of 2010. Each room features a theme such as the 1960s-style "It Takes Two" room, which is dedicated to great duets like June Carter and Johnny Cash.

To round out your tour, watch a video hosted by a newer member of the Opry family, Blake Shelton. Throughout your tour, via video, the young country music star gives you his perspective on what it’s like behind the scenes at the Opry. You also get to see performance footage from the past and details about more recent events, including the 2010 flood that caused considerable damage to the building.

  • Once again Viator arranged a wonderful tour of the Grand Ole Oprey. I use Viator for nearly all my excursions and they always give 100. Excellent tour with all the backstage stars dressing rooms that are seen in the Tv series. Went on stage really surreal

  • I booked this tour two weeks in advance as directed and found out right before the trip that the grand ole port was being closed for private party. I contacted Viator and they were unable to reschedule my tour. I had to call back several times because we kept keeping disconnected only to find out that Viator is unable to schedule any tours over the weekend. I had to schedule on my own and still have been charged for the tickets I never got to use.

  • Was interesting to see and here stories.

  • We found this very large group tour extremely boring and not very informative. Alot of waiting for the many groups to get through different areas. After a security screening, you will watch a tv with a Blake Shelton video loop, see the back stage entry door, a security room with member names on the walls, roped off dressing rooms, a green room, and the stage before you walk through the seating area on your way to the gift shop. They will take a photo on the stage and you can purchase it in the gift shop. The tour runs over the 1 hour because the groups are very large and bottleneck between rooms. You will go through 6 guides and almost each one will ask the same questions - where are you from, have you ever been to a show here, etc.. I'm not sure what the advantage is to buying these tickets in advance as you will still be required to stand in line with your voucher to reclaim your entry tickets.

  • Felt like we were rushed, was not able to spend time looking at the rooms and the displays

  • This tour was totally worth it and I would highly recommend it

  • Wonderful tour. Seeing and hearing the backstage stories was very interesting. We would recommend this as a nice followup to attending a performance at the GOO.

  • Great tour, really interesting!

  • Had a great/fun tour. The young gentleman who did our tour was very knowledgeable and funny. I suggest the tour to anyone who is a fan of the Grand Ole Opry.

  • The backstage tour was a lot of fun. We visited the studio where HeeHaw was filmed. We visited the dressing rooms. We went onstage. We learned a lot about the Grand Ole Opry.
