one of my favorite parts of our nashville trip (yes, i'm still posting about it, you can never have too much nashville!) was our tour at the grand ole opry. we were lucky enough to fit in a backstage tour into our schedule and i'm so glad that we did. we even got tickets to the night's show - where little big town and tyler farr were performing! it was so cool to see where the artists hang out, stand on the stage and learn all about the opry's history.
the history at the opry is incredible - so many famous people have and still do take the stage. the grand ole opry is a weekly country music stage concert in that has presented the biggest stars of that genre. it was founded in 1925 as a one-hour radio "barn dance" and is among the longest-running radio broadcasts in history. dedicated to honoring country music and its history, the opry showcases a mix of legends and contemporary chart-toppers performing country, bluegrass, folk, gospel, and comedic performances and skits. the grand ole pry is considered an american icon and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world and millions of radio and internet listeners.
