When you walk through the doors of historic Ryman Auditorium, one thing becomes clear right away: this isn’t just another nightly music venue, and it’s so much more than a daytime tourist stop. This place is hallowed ground. This is the exact spot...more

We found the seating far more comfortable than we had imagined. They do sell concessions and you are allowed to bring your dink’s into the auditorium for the show. I brought a light jacket/sweater and believe I used it. Neither my husband or I remember it being extreme one way or the other temperature wise.
