    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.

    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

    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.

    Many believe the Ryman is the Grand Ole Opry home. In fact, Nat'l Life & Accident Insurance Co. in downtown is the original home. NASHVILLEANDBEYOND.com

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

    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!
