Classic Country at its Best Sep 06, 2008
Ever since I was 13 and discovered the beauty of Classic Country music, I had dreamed of going to the Grand Ole Opry. I was traveling by myself, so I went by myself, but it was a wonderful experience. I felt as though I were in another time, with Little Jimmy Dickens and all the other regulars there. I was lucky enough to get to see Dwight Yoakam perform (his first Opry performance in 16 years) - and he performed his tributes to Buck Owens, one of the best singers of all time.

The Grand Ole Opry is truly a Nashville staple, and you can't go without it, if you truly want to experience this beautiful city. I highly recommend the early evening show on Saturday, where an hour is shown live on country music television.

Grand Ole Opry! May 06, 2008
OMG! I added Nashville onto my USA trip because I have always wanted to go the Grand Ole Opry! Tim booked us 2 tickets to the Friday April 25th show! The Grand Ole Opry is a weekly country music radio program and concert broadcast live on WSM radio in Nashville, Tennessee, every Friday and Saturday night, as well as Tuesdays from March through December. It is the oldest continuous radio program in the United States, having been broadcast on WSM since October 5, 1925.

On October 2, 1954, a teenage Elvis Presley made his first (and only) performance there, after the show he was told by one of the organizers that he ought to return to Memphis to resume his truck-driving career, prompting him to swear never to return.

The Ryman was home to the Opry until 1974, when the show moved to the 4,400-seat Grand Ole Opry House, nine miles east of downtown Nashville. The Opry currently plays several times a week at the Grand Ole Opry House except for an annual winter run at the Ryman Auditorium.

I saw performances by country stars such as Kathy Mattea, Rebecca Lynn Howard (she was one of my favourites! she has an amazing vocal range), Connie Smith, John Conlee, Eddy Raven, Jimmy Dickens, Dailey Vincent and many others. I had a wonderful night and it really was a dream come true to visit! The tickets cost around $35 + and its best to book online at www.opry.com I hope you have fun as much fun as I did at the Grand Ole Opry!
