You just can't go to Nashville and not visit the Grand Ole Opry. Though it's not the same as it once was, and the Opryland theme park is gone, the music and the performers are evergreen at this famous singing joint.Enjoy five or six different acts each evening. While the schedule is typically not released very far in advance, you are guaranteed to see some country music legends such as Little Jimmy or Roy. And we lucked out and had Dierks Bentley as the final act the evening we went! Aaron Tippin was also part of the show; it's always a name of big nights and up and coming favorites at the Opry!The space is large enough to accommodate tons of fans, but small enough that you still feel close to the stage. We sat lower level far left, and still had a great view; three large screen TVs helped since we were at such a side angle. For Dierks performance, we ran right down to the stage with the younger pre-teen set to ooh and awe over this hot country star; and were able to get right up to the stage without any issues, and take plenty of photos. If you are looking to get a real taste of Nashville music and the history of this music, you must check out the Grand Ole Opry. And each show they give away tickets to sit on stage!
