|About these ratings|
It was this radio show -- which began broadcasting in the 1920s -- that put Nashville on the map as the "Country Music Capital of the World." Although its venue has changed several times, the Grand Ole Opry continues to host top country performers such as Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood and Little Jimmy Dickens. A trip to Nashville isn't complete without at least stopping by the Grand Ole Opry House for a tour or heading over to the adjacent museum for a look back through the ages. One Yelp.com user describes the visit as "A wonderful experience which should be enjoyed by all at least once in our lives."
Located northwest of Downtown Nashville in the Opryland district, tours of the Grand Ole Opry House are available seven days a week, although availability depends on concert schedules. The museum is also open every day at 10 a.m. and closing time varies. Entry is free, and tour prices vary depending on the season and concert schedules.
