    The home of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. For over thirty years, the auditorium began as the Union Gospel Tabernacle. It was built by a roistering riverboat captain, who came originally to scoff and disrupt services conducted in downtown Nashville by Rev. Sam Jones.
The visit in 1885 resulted in such a thorough conversion that Captain Ryman began financing the building of the Tabernacle in 1889. After his death, the Union Gospel Tabernacle was renamed the Ryman Auditorium at the suggestion of the Rev. Jones.

Recognized as one of the best concert halls in the south, with almost perfect acoustics, the auditorium continues to be used by many performers for many occasions; but, it remains the mother church of Country music, its well-worn stage bearing the historic footprints of all the Country music stars of the forties, fifties, sixties, and seventies. The Ryman remains at 116 5th Avenue North.

Thanks Karen, I did have a good time in Nashville. I haven't planned a trip to Reelfoot yet but we could go one Saturday leaving early in the a.m. and returning late afternoon or evening.
