Grand Ole Opry
What began as a simple radio broadcast in 1925 has grown into Nashville’s number one attraction and a true American icon, the Grand Ole Opry. The Grand Ole Opry is dedicated to honoring country music’s rich history and dynamic present and showcases a mix of country music legends of the past and contemporary chart-toppers of the present. This, country’s most famous stage, has launched countless music careers and is the driving force behind the nickname Music City for Nashville.
Hundreds of thousands of guests come to see the incredible live shows annually, and millions listen through different media platforms daily, such as smartphone apps, SiriusXM, local radio, and online links. While you are here your group will have the chance to see a live two-hour show. The first members of the Opry family included Ernest Tubb, Roy Acuff, and Minnie Pearl. Today you can see such acts as Trace Adkins, Trisha Yearwood, Brad Paisley, and Martina McBride.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to take a backstage tour while you are here, either upon arrival or prior to a show. During a tour, you will walk in the footsteps of country superstars and get an exclusive look at the behind the scenes on the Grand Ole Opry stage. Your group will hear stories of backstage excitement throughout the years, as well as have the varying opportunity to see a star preparing or practicing before a big show! Prepare yourself and your group for a ‘foot-stomping, hand clapping, laughing crying good time’ as you visit an absolutely essential country music tour stop, Nashville historic icon, and home of American music!
