    We travelled to Nashville and stayed at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and booked for a show at the Grand Ole Opry. It was so easy to get there from the hotel. The venue was great and the show was fabulou...  more »

    We had so much fun at the Tuesday Night Opry! There were no "big names" that performed, but it did not take away our enjoyment. There were seven artists and one comedian. Each artist performed 2-3 son...  more »

    No trip to Nashville is complete without a trip to the Opry, even if you don't care country music (like me)! The behind the scenes tour was fun and informative taking you back stage to the dressing rooms. You also get to go on stage and stand at center stage with floorboards from the original Opry stage. If you can, go on a day when they are doing a concert. I went late in the day and then stayed for the evening, it was a great time. That being said, traffic leaving the event was crazy, it took more than 30 minutes to get out of the parking lot. If you go, either park by the exit or walk to one of the local shops nearby and get a cab or bus.

    What a wonderful night we had. We weren't sure who all was going to be there that night but once we found out we were even more excited. I love that they still broadcast the show, I didn't realize that. I highly recommend doing the backstage tour it made the night extra special especially being up on the Opry stage. Our tour guides Liz and Morgan were very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. If you have a chance this is a must see.

    This was a terrific venue to visit and catch a show. Large guitar statues welcome you as you walk up to the Opry and the building itself has a cool design. A group of friends and I came from NYC and it was our first time in Nashville. We caught a Saturday night show and it was a lot of fun. All of the staff are so friendly and helpful. Even though there are no refunds, one of my friends had an emergency and could not make the show, so they actually gave her a refund since we called many hours ahead which was really accommodating of them. Even if you don't love country music, each singer or announcer will give a little brief overview about the singer or artists about to perform. There are a number of regular Opry performers and then lots of guest performers. Each musical group does 2-3 songs and in between it's a live radio show. There are also bars with alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks at the venue. I highly recommend trying the Opry out at least once!

    Well it is a live show with no less than 6 different performers. It's family friendly entertainment, high quality entertainment with audience participation. Very personal despite large crowds. All good seats. Lots of steps but elevator for handicapped needs Food and drink available at amusement park prices. Backstage tour was worth it too. Again very personal.

    The GOO is amazing. You are humbled by the many country music legends and the history of this iconic organization that spans decades. The Opry Shop has lots of great souvenirs and t-shirts, Opry posters, jewelry, so much to see! You won't want to leave but I'm sure you will def want to go back again!

Where to stay in Nashville

Stay in downtown, midtown, the west end, or near Vanderbilt to be at the center of it all in Nashville. You'll find plenty of boutique hotels and major chains in all of these areas, which give you great access to the downtown music scene and beyond. While you can find a bit of everything in downtown Nashville, from larger hotels to apartment rentals, keep in mind that more affordable, and often quainter, options are located further from Broadway. Travelers looking to spend most of their time at the Grand Ole Opry should consider accommodations in the Opryland or Music Valley area near the airport.
