I was afraid I would hate this show being that I don’t listen to country music and didn’t know any of the names. This show was absolutely amazing! Alison Kraus was angelic, The Steels Woods rocked it, and the older bands were funny and entertaining....More

The concert was amplified by the great atmosphere, quaintness and coziness of this theater. I can see why they call it the Church of Country.

Loved the concert at the Ryman. Very close and personal. I enjoyed the show here better then the newer auditorium. Surprised Hurst performers were a bonus.

We did the self guided tour and it was great! Loved the video at the beginning of the tour. Great information to set the stage for the rest of the tour. They have so much information around the building!

I think it all depends on what show you are trying to see. I could not find any available seats before I left UK, but managed to get them with the help of our hotel concierge service, once in Nashville.

It is better to get around using taxi or Uber services. We were very pleased with the Uber drivers in Nashville. As with most cities, leave your car at the hotel and take taxi.
