My first Opry at the Ryman was better than my first visit to The Grand Ole Opry House. It is just humbling being in a building where such legendary musicians have played. The Ryman is small, but has great acoustics. It truly feels special, unlike the Opry House, which can feel a little commercial. I would love to go back... More

Awesome night. Plenty of music from well known and lesser known talent. Seats are awesome anywhere in the house. Sounds are very authentic as in not recorded and perfect but perfectly sung in the moment. Can't leave unhappy from this one.

Highly recommend you put this on your must do while in Nashville list. We got to see the performance on 29 Nov 2016. It was a legendary afternoon for someone who is a huge country music fan. Book your tickets well in advance for best seats.

Vince and Amy Grant put on a great Christmas show. Very relaxed and enjoyable. The seats however, are very uncomfortable for a three hour show. Would still recommend to friends.

Very memorable visit , walked around the whole place. Did the tour which was worth a visit even got a photo playing guitar on stage . Very historic and will remember this for years. Place has much character . Didn't feel commercialised at all. Do it

In case you were unaware, The Ryman is second. Only to. The Mormon Tabernacle in terms of acoustic perfection. Every show there is enhanced by the purity of sound in this historic auditorium. This time we saw Amy Grant and Vine Gill's Christmas show. As usual, it was fantastic. And if you have a chance, book a tour of the... More

We were fortunate to attend a performance of the Grand Old Opry at the Ryman. The show and the venue was great. A must see while in Nashville.

The Ryman is the perfect venue for an afternoon of great entertainment! We went to see Kelly Pickler but also enjoyed Drew Baldrige's performance as well as a jammed packed line up of great entertainment. Great seats, company, and music. I even got Kelly's autograph!

I knew practically zero about the Ryman until I saw it on a list of things to see in Nashville. I did a "self-guided" tour and instantly fell in love. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn about country music history and would love to come back to see a musical performance! Definitely a Nashville must see!
