See The Show That Made Country Music Famous!

I

t all began on the night of Nov. 28, 1925, when an announcer on Nashville radio station WSM introduced fiddle player Uncle Jimmy Thompson as the first performer on a new show soon to be known around the globe as the Grand Ole Opry. Today the magic continues. Trace Adkins, Blake Shelton, Vince Gill, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart, Mel Tillis, and Carrie Underwood are among the stars that are part of the Opry family. Thousands of people make pilgrimages every year to see and hear these stars and more, while millions tune in to enjoy the Opry via 650 WSM, Sirius XM Satellite Radio, syndicated radio, or opry.com. Fans can also get more up-to-the-minute information and news by following the Grand Ole Opry on Facebook and Twitter.

They even have an iPhone app. N ow in its 85th year, the show has seen its share of history – including last May’s devastating flood that temporarily left the show without a permanent home. But the Grand Ole Opry House was refurbished in time to celebrate its October birthday with country music legend Dolly Parton and superstar Taylor Swift, among others. The Opry House is now back better than ever. Starting in late January you can take a tour of the all-new backstage areas of the Opry House, including 18 dressing rooms with new themes highlighting some of the Opry’s most famous stars and celebrating its most famous stories. Tours are available seven days a week. The Grand Ole Opry is performed every Friday and Saturday night, plus Tuesdays March through December.

Country music owes its rise in popularity to a live show

that began 85 years ago. The tradition is stronger than ever today, as several times each week the Opry presents a live show with an ever-changing mix of famous and soon-to-be-famous talent. At the Opry, you can count on things happening you just can’t see anywhere else. Shows every Friday and Saturday.

here is only one Music City, and today Nashville continues its emergence as a cultural, artistic and entertainment-rich destination, filled with unique music, a myriad of art galleries, botanical gardens and greenways, historic homes, honkytonks and culinary delights. There’s a whole host of attractions that have made Music City famous. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which includes over a million artifacts exploring country’s connections to blues, R&B and pop, will also feature the temporary exhibit, The Bakersfield Sound: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and California Country opening in March 2012. Across the street stands the home of the Grammy-award winning Nashville Symphony, the dazzling $123 million Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Inspired by the greatest concert halls in the world, the 197,000-square-foot classically-

Music City Walk of Fame

columned venue offers an unparalleled acoustical experience. Nashville has a pristine collection of antebellum estate mansions: Belle Meade, where a string of winning thoroughbreds was raised; The Hermitage, presidential home of Andrew Jackson; and Belmont Mansion, drenched in Victorian grandeur. Tour the beautifully-restored hilltop State Capitol building, then walk down to the Tennessee State Museum for an educational tour of the state’s history and culture. Dubbed the Athens of the South for its elegance, style and many academic institutions, Nashville claims a full-size replica of the Parthenon in Centennial Park, complete with the 42-ft high statue Athena, the tallest indoor sculpture in the western world. The Frist Center for the Visual Arts, an exquisitely converted Art Deco post office, hosts roving exhibitions changing every couple of months. The mansion at Cheekwood houses an extensive art gallery surrounded by 55 acres of divine gardens. What truly sets the city apart is the music. Music is the very heart of Nashville. Long recognized as the world’s capital of country music, Music City also boasts sounds of pop, rock, gospel, bluegrass, jazz, classical, contemporary Christian, blues and soul. Supported by rhythm tracks of culture and history, Nashville is uniquely and authentically “Music City.” In Nashville you can hear great music 24/7, 365 days a year. A great place to begin a tour is on Lower Broadway where honky tonks line the street. Here you’ll find evocative names like Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge and Robert’s Western World, and you never know who you might see (or hear), a current star or the next big thing.

Live Music Concert with Keith Urban

You’ll catch star-dusted pickers and songwriters all over town, in places like bluegrass venue Station Inn, the rockin’ Exit/In, the honky tonkin’ bars on Broadway, the song-centered Bluebird Café or the legendary Ryman Auditorium. Of course, the ultimate country venue is the Grand Ole Opry House, where legends and current stars perform on the nation’s longest-running live radio program. Eating and drinking are high on the list of priorities. Nashville’s palate offers everything from Southen fare to haute cuisine with quite literally everything in between. Here, a perfect barbecue is as celebrated as the most spectacular creation from any of the city’s award-winning chefs. Whether it’s a family-friendly meal, dinner and a show or a romantic repast, the city’s restaurants serve every dish with a side of Southern hospitality. With its charming mix of musical, historical and cultural flavors, Nashville is truly a city for all seasons and styles. So whether it’s listening to live music, soaking in the art scene, exploring history or simply relaxing, you’ll find many ways to enjoy Music City and discover why music calls us home. january/february 2012

The Ryman Auditorium

T

he history of the Ryman dates back to the 1880s when Thomas G. Ryman a riverboat captain and Nashville businessman, attended a revival by famed traveling evangelist Sam Jones. Legend has it Captain Ryman planned to heckle the preacher but instead was converted on the spot and decided to raise money for a permanent place for Jones to preach.  Ryman wanted to insure that Rev. Jones would never again have to preach under a tent. Seven years and $100,000 later, in 1892, the Union Gospel Tabernacle was completed. It would be renamed Ryman Auditorium upon Captain Ryman’s death in 1904. From 1904 until the Grand Ole Opry came in 1943, the Ryman served as the venue for a wide variety of events: religious revivals, jazz recitals, operas, ballets, political debates and even boxing matches.  Under the management of Lula C. Naff  one of the few businesswomen of her era, the Ryman became one of the south’s premier performance halls, hosting music and acting luminaries of the times

8

getaway nashville and middle tennessee

such as Rudolph Valentino, Katharine Hepburn, Mae West and Bob Hope. The Ryman’s stellar line-up of talent and amazing acoustics earned it recognition as the “Carnegie Hall of the South.”  In 1943, Mrs. Naff signed a contract to rent the Ryman out on Saturday nights for a popular live radio show that had outgrown several local venues.  It was a decision that changed the course of history for the Ryman and for country music. That show was WSM’s Grand Ole Opry. During the Grand Ole Opry’s residence from 1943-1974, the building gained nationwide recognition as the “Mother Church of Country Music.”  The Ryman rarely had an empty seat for the Saturday night Opry, with admission lines frequently extending around the block. Pioneering performers such as Bill Monroe, Hank Williams and Patsy Cline helped shape country and bluegrass music from the Ryman stage.  After the Opry departed for the new Grand Ole Opry House, the future of the Ryman was uncertain, but talk of razing the building brought a huge public outcry and the building was left standing. In 1994, Ryman Auditorium reopened

after a major renovation, beginning a new chapter of its history. In 2001 the Ryman was named a National Historic Landmark.  It is now open daily for tours with nearly 150,000 visitors a year touring the historic building. The Ryman has also re-established its place as a premier concert venue, attracting world-class artists from all genres of music. Country superstar Keith Urban has called the Ryman “My favorite place to play,” while alt-rockers Coldplay has deemed the venue “The greatest theatre in the world!”.  Far from being a relic of the past, the Ryman is a living monument that continues to present the best in entertainment to a new generation of audiences. The famed Mother Church of Country Music has won many awards since reopening in 1994 including Pollstar Magazine’s prestigious Theatre of the Year award three times, the Academy of Country Music’s Venue of the Year and IEBA’s Venue of the Year.

Nashville Nightlife Dinner Theater “A Must See in Nashville”

A

re you looking for some good ole’ home cooking, exceptional Southern Hospitality and live entertainment that will have you singing along and tapping your feet? Then Nashville Nightlife is definitely the place to go! We recently had the pleasure of a night out at the theater. We were warmly greeted at the door and given our tickets. We browsed the lobby area where we found unique, one-of-a-kind souvenirs and gifts. Before long, the hostess called our name and personally seated our party in the dinner theater. A smiling, friendly waitress took our beverage order and directed us to the buffet table. There we found a lovely salad bar and a first-class buffet with country fried chicken and ribs as their entrees that night, complete with all the fixins’. Everything was homemade right down to the peach cobbler for dessert. I had the warm feeling of being in my grandma’s kitchen. Once the entertainment starts, I guarantee you will be dancing in your seat. We were treated to such a wide variety of music from Hank Williams Sr., Patsy Cline, and

I would highly recommend that visitors to Nashville experience Nashville Nightlife

Conway Twitty to Sara Evans and Toby Keith. There is entertainment for the entire family. The “Best of Country” Dinner and Show, throughout their season, includes guest stars such as “Opry Star” Jeannie Seely, “The Fiddle Man” Tim Watson, Tommy Cash, Diana Murrell, Paula Poe (from the Tammy Wynette Show) and many others. This is a fantastic show you won’t want to miss! The standing ovation at the end of the show is an indication of the great time the audience had. Following the show there is a meet and greet with the performers. I would highly recommend that visitors to Nashville experience Nashville Nightlife where you will see the best of country from old to new. Come see why the Nashville Nightlife Dinner Theater presents a Dinner and Country Music Show voted the best combination in Nashville. Located at 2620 Music Valley Dr, Nashville, approximately 1 1/4 miles from the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Grand Ole Opry. Don’t miss this Nashville tradition.

Destination Wedding

I

at Schermerhorn Symphony Center

t’s your special day, with family and friends surrounding you and your significant other for your sparkling destination wedding in Nashville, Tennessee. What? Nashville? Yes, if you’re looking to plan an extraordinary event without leav’ ing the United States, no visas are needed to create a classically unique destination wedding at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, Tennessee! Schermerhorn Symphony Center, home to the Nashville Symphony, is a jewel of neo-Classical architecture nestled downtown in Music City, and it has become one of the hottest spots for a distinctive, one-of-a-kind event experience, flexible enough to host as few as 10 wedding guests or as many as 1,000. This beautiful architectural landmark, with resplendent fountains on landscaped grounds, provides the perfect backdrop for an unparalleled experience. You and your guests will be impressed with the special treatment and VIP services, including luxurious dressing rooms, numerous spaces to select from, custom lighting, in-house catering service by award-winning chefs, and valet parking for your guests. Private, opulent and comfortable, each of the building’s smaller rooms possesses a unique, inviting personality. Paneled in dark hardwoods and furnished with antique furniture, Founders Hall exudes old-world charm, reminiscent of the best private clubs. Adjoining this room is the graceful Green Room, a sitting room that can be accessed by opening the double doors for additional space. The Board Room offers a muted approach to elegance and lends itself to bridal luncheons or quiet ceremonies, with walls covered in cranberry-hued imported mohair. With so many spaces to choose from, the polished professionals at Schermerhorn Symphony Center can assist brides in imagining any theme, fulfilling their dreams for the perfect wedding. Some popular choices include creating an intimate garden wedding outside with silk tenting, a casual courtyard wedding with white summer deck chairs and the cool splashing sounds of fountains all around, or a stylish sit-down dinner in the sophisticated, ice-blue Curb Room. Many couples choose to rent the entire building for a lavish night beginning with the ceremony, followed by a custom dining experience and dancing to live music in Laura Turner Concert Hall. Praised internationally for its amazing acoustics, Laura Turner Concert Hall is also the South’s most distinctive ballroom. In a matter of hours, the sloped floor of Brazilian cherry wood can be replaced by a flat floor patterned in cherry and American blond hickory wood – perfect for a wedding, reception or dinner. The stage itself offers another option for a cocktail reception area or a small seated dinner. There are three levels of seating available, and the magnificent chandeliers can be lowered or raised to create the ambiance desired. With hotels located conveniently nearby, country music honky-tonks within walking distance and a host of activities for your guests to enjoy throughout the entire weekend, Schermerhorn Symphony Center is the perfect destination for your wedding.
