"A wonderful experience!"
A wonderful experience! Standing on the stage, now that was 1 of the highlights for the day and i was really looking forward to doing this. This was a dream come true, to stand on the stage where so much history was made and where your favorite performers stood. Wow, what a day to remember, and a wonderful picture for the memory. The back stage tour was great and we had an excellent tour guide. The 2nd highlight, was watching the matinee show. This was a bonus, we stumbled onto this event when we signed in. Excellent show and we enjoyed all the country performers, that we would never have seen on our own -- they were all right there, wow! Loved the johnny cash display! Wonderful event and i would recommend this to anyone who is a die hard country music fan, such as me. I learned about so many in-depth history and details, that it made the ryman auditorium come alive in my mind. The ryman auditorium, steeped in history, the performers who have played on the stage, the country family that consists of the performers and the fans. Joanna
