Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium – a recently named Rock & Roll Landmark – is flexing its rock chops in a new tour feature in collaborating with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The Tennessean stopped by to visit the exhibit before it opened to the public on Wednesday, Nov. 2.
“From Elvis Presley to the Foo Fighters, a new exhibit inside Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium – AKA the so-called Mother Church – pays tribute to the tabernacle’s long-running rock ‘n’ roll history,” Mathew Leimkuehler wrote for the Tennessean. “Called ‘Rock Hall at the Ryman,’ the attraction opens as part of a long-term collaboration with Ohio-based Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.”
The Tennessean called out exhibits that feature:
- Elvis Presley’s (brief) Ryman history
- Revisiting James Brown’s Ryman debut
- A gift from Dolly Parton (AKA Nashville’s new Rock Hall of Famer)
- A slice of famed Foo Fighters attire
- Today’s hitmakers
