The Ryman Auditorium, revered as the “Mother Church” of country music, has been an anchor of the Nashville music scene for more than a century. The Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee is the Mother Ship where the entire history of country music is showcased in the 360,000 square-foot multi-story facility.
The Opry outgrew the Ryman in the 1970s, but the legendary show returns for winter broadcasts every November through January.
From Hank Williams and Flatt & Scruggs, Chet Atkins, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, to Patsy Cline and Bob Hope, the list of luminaries who have performed at the National Historic Landmark Ryman, is a literal Who’s Who of the American music scene.
