Grand Ole Opry House
Neighborhood: Music Valley
In 1974 the Grand Ole Opry radio program moved from the Ryman Auditorium to the newly built Grand Ole Opry House. The Opry House seats 4,372 almost double that of the Ryman and carries on the Ryman’s style of wooden pews and full balcony seating making it seem like a little big sister to the Opry’s former home. The Venue is next to a mall “Opry Mills” and a luxury hotel “Gaylord Opryland” both of which were built because of the Grand Ole Opry’s move. The Grand Ole Opry helped put country music on the map and the Grand Ole Opry House has proven to be a venue that can carry and contribute to the Opry program’s storied history.
