This is your chance to feel the history of the Ryman Auditorium, home to the Grand Ole Opry for more than 30 years. During the tour, you can head down to the legendary stage to stand underneath the lights and have a photo taken 'singing' in front of the Grand Ole Opry audience!


About the Soul of Nashville Movie


The tour begins with an intriguing experience called, 'Soul of Nashville'. 'Soul of Nashville' is a fantastic opportunity to witness the collaboration of Darius Rucker, The Fisk Jubilee Singers, Sheryl Crow, and Vince Gill. 

Then you'll be able to explore the fascinating memorabilia housed in exhibit-style cases along the back wall underneath the beautiful stained glass windows. Memorabilia includes everything from Marty Robbins' jacket to Minnie Pearl's famous hat, and also features items from the Ryman's earlier years prior to the Grand Ole Opry.

You'll then be able to head upstairs for a view of the stage from the balcony, and be sure to make your way out into the balcony hallway to explore the photos, artifacts, and other items housed upstairs. Photos are welcome inside the Ryman, so be sure to bring along a camera! This is your chance to tour one of Nashville's favorites, the National Historic Landmark often called 'The Mother Church of Country Music.'

"This was one of the highlights of our trip."
This was one of the highlights of our trip. The ryman is beautiful and has so much history. And the staff was wonderful and knowledgeable. You can walk right up on the stage. While you there, be sure to record a song. Only 15.00 and you can say you recorded at the ryman. The songs are limited but you can get a list from the website so you are prepared.

"I would recommend to anyone to take the time to visit."
I walked in the building and instantly felt the presence of all those wonderful stars that have gone on. Then to actually see the stage where so many great performers stood. It was joy beyond words. I would recommend to anyone to take the time to visit. I now live in nashville and it is still a huge thrill to go and see.

"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
