Put this on the top of your list when you visit Nashville! We learned a lot of interesting music history during the backstage tour. Look forward to returning and seeing a performance in this lovely "church".

We totally enjoyed learning about The Ryman and having a chance to enter a hall that had been home to so many musicians. The video is fun as was watching the crew get ready for a country music awards show.
