Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
We had a great time at the opry!! We were in the balcony section, but were center stage, so had great views, and they also have 3 large screens so you won't miss anything!! I used the screens to get closeups with my camera! The show is about 2.5 hours with a short intermission. We bought soft drinks and nachos, the prices were about average for the venue. Advice: pick up your tickets and do your souvenir shopping in the morning- the opry shop is rather small and was jammed after the show. When you go to get your tickets, park at opry mills mall by the aquarium restaurant to avoid paying for parking, it is within walking distance to the ticket shop and opry store. We shopped that morning, as we wanted time to pick our gifts. Also, take a shuttle if your hotel provides one, or you can take a private shuttle to avoid the traffic and the price of parking.

Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
The grand ole opra exceeded all of my expectations! I am not a country music fan but enjoyed all of the talented musicians and singers. It is a well oiled machine on how they have band after band just play a few songs or maybe just one! I will definitely be back! It was the highlight of my nashville trip!

Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
My girlfriend and i had a wonderful time in nashville recently. We attended the grand ole opry and saw our favorite entertainers up close: (leann rimes, lorrie morgan, pam tillis and others). We shopped a lot in the malls and downtown shops, dined at some really fine restaurants, and visited the country music hall of fame. We attended the michael buble' concert, which was fantastic as we sat near the front of the stage. We slept very comfortably at the alexis inn and suites near the airport. My girlfriend's father, jack mallante, had performed with ernest tubb and barbara mandrell years ago, and we got lots of pictures of him and them and memorabalia. We had a wonderful time in nashville! Thank you, vacations made easy!
