Amy Grant and Vince Gill performance at the Ryman was so enjoyable. They sang many old familiar songs plus newer ones. Vince Gill playing his guitar was the highlight of the show. He sure can play as well as he sings. The stage was set...More

Definitely make sure to attend a Grand Opry show. It is so much fun to sit through a live radio show.

Interesting building and great we could book online for the show. However, seating is too crowded and too hot!

I can't say enough about how much this place means to me -- the history, the mother church, etc. We moved to Nashville last year and going to shows here was number one on my list of the things I wanted to do. Last week...More

I can remember listening to WSM radio as a child and this visit to the Ryman now puts it all together for me. Love the tour

We did not. We were there around 2:00 on Saturday and walked right up to get tickets with no problem for the self guided tour. Now if you want to see a show, you probably need to do that in advance!
