AAA Editor Notes
Grand Ole Opry shows are performed in the Grand Ole Opry House, 2804 Opryland Dr., for most of the year or downtown at the Ryman Auditorium, 116 Rep. John Lewis Way N., during the winter. Since 1925, country's best have mesmerized audiences at the Opry, the live radio show that made country music famous. While performances from both legendary honky-tonk entertainers and the latest country music acts are the norm, if you go (and while in Nashville, you really must), you'll also enjoy bluegrass bands, comedians and gospel artists.

The list of current Grand Ole Opry members includes such stars as Kelsea Ballerini, Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton, Marty Stuart and Carrie Underwood, all of whom return regularly to sing on the same spot—a round, 6-foot piece of oak wood at center stage. Cut from the Ryman Auditorium, the show's home 1943-74, the circle pays tribute to the Opry's storied existence and its bygone talents—everyone from Roy Acuff to Patsy Cline.

Backstage tours of the Grand Ole Opry House offer visitors an up-close look at the celebrated venue and its themed dressing rooms. Post-show and VIP tours also are offered.

Guided tours are available. Food is available. Time: Allow 2 hours, 30 minutes minimum.
