    the ryman is the best place to hear a concert in nashville, hands down! so many great bands come thru here. pros: intimate space, amazing acoustics, beer... cons: hard to dance if you feel like it!

    Look for any reason to attend a concert in this beautifully restored musical treasure, regularly cited as one of the best musical venues of its size in the U.S. No bad seats and incredible acoustics.

    Best place to see live music! Acoustics are the best in Nashville plus there's not a bad seat in the house. Faves that I've seen here are Keith Urban and the Black Crowes, and I'm looking forward to

    My favorite venue in all of Nashville (possibly the world). If you get the option, choose balcony tickets and prepare to weep from the beauty of the venue and your favorite artist's show.

    One of the most beautiful places in Nashville, and an incredibly magical venue to see your favorite musician perform. Everyone from Johnny Cash to Bob Dylan and Neil Young have graced its stage. Read more

    I saw Imogen Heap here at the Ryman. Amazing experience. Not a bad seat in the whole building. Eat at one of the many restaurants downtown and see a show here. Makes for an excellent night out. :)

    Bring your own cushion for the church pews if you must, but the shows are so good you'll spend most of the time on your feet. Historic Nashville showplace filled with friendly ghosts of Christmas past Read more

    The "mother church" of country music is the original home of the Grand Ole Opry. The atmosphere and acoustics are spectacular in any section, but experiencing a show from the balcony is unforgettable.

    This one-time tabernacle church is an experience you will not soon forget, and there is not a bad seat in the house. Everyone should see a show here at least once in their lives. Read more

    If you have a chance to see ANY music act @ The Ryman, GO FOR IT! There's really not a bad seat in the whole place! An awesome, sacred experience, no matter what act you are seeing!

    Acoustically the best place to see live music in Nashville. Jack's BBQ off the Ryman alley has some amazing ribs! Sit on the alley patio and gawk at the groupies after the show.

    Nashville's best live music is at the Ryman, and Tedeschi Trucks Band will only prove that further when they rock this place on 4/29. That's a show you do not want to miss! Read more

    Sitting on the first few rows in the balcony is the best seat in the house in my opinion :) GREAT view and of course the sound in the Ryman is great anywhere.

    Previously known as the Grand Old Opry House, this auditorium first opened as the Union Gospel Tabernacle in 1892. It was built by Thomas Ryman & renamed in his honor after his death.

    Good venue. Downstairs audience stands for most of the concert. Get seats in the balcony if you want to sit during event. Remember, it used to be a church...

    The self guided tour is great. They'll literally let you just wander around the building looking at stuff. You can take as much or as little time as you like.

    Its truly a spectacular venue, whether ur there there to see music or stand up acoustics are amazing and every seat is the best seat in the house.

    The combo tour (guided backstage tour and self-guided around the rest) is well worth the $14 ticket price. Mariel was a great tour guide.

    Be careful where your seats are. There are support columns that obstruct view and being seated under the balcony can obstruct view if you're tall.

    A concert at The Ryman is an intimate experience. Balcony seats are best but you can't go wrong with seats anywhere. I have seen The Avett Brothers & Bon Iver here. It's the best venue in the south!
    Cherise Mingus · July 28, 2011
  • John M.
    All great seats and sound. Drinks are a little pricey. $9 for mixed drinks and tap beers. Sitting on church pews so bring a cushion.

    When you're finished with the Country Music Hall of Fame, take in a show at the historical Ryman Auditorium. It's been around since the 1800s and is called the "Mother Church of Country Music."

  • Justin W.
    Best venue in the world. If you are buying tickets late, you are better off anywhere on the balcony than way back on the floor level.

    It started as a church, then served as The Grand Ole Opry. Now, it’s one of the country’s most famous music venues. David Byrne with St. Vincent, The Shins and Crosby Stills and Nash are playing soon.

    Neat history and story about restoration. Self walking tour is ok. You can hear lots from guides in other groups.

    Fantastic venue! If you can't get floor seats close to the stage, go for the balcony. Always a great view!

    Go to Robert's after the show to let the traffic clear out. Go in the back door to avoid the line. Also, get a cheeseburger. You will thank me later.

    A favorite venue of Justin Townes Earle, Earle will be at the Ryman vying for the Album and Song of the Year awards at the 2011 Americana Music Awards on Oct. 13th.

    The balcony seats are actually better than floor seats as long as you are in the lower 3rd of the balcony.

    Make sure you get Buddy Clarke to give you a tour! Worked here since 1964 and knows lots of first hand info!
