The Vacation of a lifetime - Grand Ole Opry, Nashville

By Robert Benjamin
  If you like country music, there is nowhere else in the world you can enjoy as much as Nashville, Tennessee and the Grand Ole Opry, a mainstay of the city known as the "home of country music." Anytime you go, you are guaranteed a mixture of current country music stars, legends, and new artists trying to break into the business.
     The best way to get tickets to the Grand Ole Opry is on the website. This means that you can get the best tickets close to the action. If you wait until you are actually in Nashville to buy your tickets for the Grand Ole Opry, you may find yourself out of luck or else in the very back.
     If you visit during non-traditional vacation times, you are sure to have an easier time getting tickets not to mention you won't need to deal with the crowds as The Grand Ole Opry is Nashville's biggest attraction.
     The Opry is open on Tuesday nights starting in March and continues on Friday and Saturday the rest of the year. The Opry starts at different times each night and there are two shows on Saturday.
     Country music icons like Hank Williams Sr., Ernest Tubbs, and Pasty Cline sang at the Opry and today their legends carry on with new singers and stars. But, the Grand Ole Opry isn't just country music. It is also a mix of gospel, comedy, and bluegrass, today's hits and more. The Grand Ole Opry is located at the Grand Ole Opry House, but was located for years in the Ryman Auditorium and before that in other locations in Nashville.
