Although I was unfamiliar with several of the performers, I thoroughly enjoyed the show. The segments were nicely separated by a brief intermission. I learned so much more about country music through the acts I witnessed. The gift shop was overly crowded, but I did return the next day to purchase items. It was another gorgeous structure.

Simply wonderful entertainment. Unfortunately, we missed Brad Paisley by a day and Carrie Underwood by a week but the entertainment was top notch! Thoroughly enjoyed the entire show. You have to attend the Grand Ole Opry if you go to Nashville!
