|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 over the years, the Grand Ole Opry continues to host top country performers like Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban. And a trip to Nashville isn't complete without stopping by the Grand Ole Opry House for a tour to look back through the ages. Get a behind-the-scenes look one of three ways: with a daytime tour, a post-show tour or a VIP tour. During a daytime tour, your guide will share stories of music legends who have walked the venue's hallowed halls, show you photos from the Opry's venerated history and possibly bring you on to the iconic stage.
The Grand Ole Opry is located northeast of Downtown Nashville in the Opryland district and tours are offered seven days a week, although availability depends on concert schedules. For more information and to purchase advance tickets, visit the Grand Ole Opry website. Admission for adults (ages 12 and older) for a daytime tour costs $19, while children's (ages 4 to 11) admission costs $14.
