Grand Ole Opry shows are performed every weekend and on Tuesdays March - December. Since 1925, country’s best have mesmerized audiences at the Opry, the show that made country music famous. While performances from both legendary entertainers and the latest country music acts are the norm, when you go to the Opry, you’ll also enjoy bluegrass bands, comedy, and more.
The list of current Grand Ole Opry members includes such stars as Little Jimmy Dickens, Loretta Lynn, Brad Paisley, Connie Smith and Carrie Underwood, all of whom return regularly to sing on the same spot—- a round, 6-foot piece of oak wood at center stage. Cut from the Ryman Auditorium stage (the show’s home 1943-74), the circle pays tribute to the country icons-- Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, and Roy Acuff among them-- who have entertained millions of fans from that very spot.
