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.

Ryman Auditorium

T

he Ryman Auditorium is a National Historic Landmark and must see for anyone visiting Nashville. Most famous as the home of the Grand Ole Opry from 1943-1974, its history as Nashville’s premiere theater and central gathering place started even before construction was complete in 1892. It is truly the cultural epicenter of Music City. Take the Self-Guided Tour where you’ll discover the divine inspiration behind the building’s construction as the Union Gospel Tabernacle in the 1880s in our welcome video. Enjoy our two Grand Ole Opry exhibits and see what Dolly Parton and Hank Williams wore during the years country and bluegrass music were shaped on the famous stage earning the Ryman monikers “Mother Church of Country Music” and “Birthplace of Bluegrass”. See video and rare photos from the Johnny Cash Show of the Man in Black with Bob Dylan and Louis Armstrong in the current “Johnny & June at the Ryman” exhibit. Listen to the “Voices of the Ryman” audio tour and hear Garrison Keillor and Marty Stuart share their Ryman experiences with you. On the tour, you’ll also have the opportunity to have your picture taken on the stage graced by legends from Aretha Franklin and Annie Lennox to Zac Brown Band and ZZ Top. Take a guided Backstage Tour through dressing rooms dedicated to the stars of the Ryman’s rich musical past including Minnie Pearl and Hank Williams. These same dressing rooms are used by all the biggest stars performing today from Brad Paisley to Bruce Springsteen. For more information, via ryman.com.

Backstage!

T

here’s nothing like a tour of the Grand Ole Opry House to get an authentic look behind the scenes of country music. A must-see for anyone visiting Nashville, Opry House Backstage Pass Tours come complete with great stories about the Opry and members past and present (from Minnie Pearl to Carrie Underwood, you might say) as well as enough photo opportunities to fill any Music City vacation scrapbook. Tours include a visit to the Opry House artist entrance as well as a stop in Studio A, a live television studio and former home of HEE HAW. Also showcased are artist dressing rooms, newly refurbished following the Nashville flood of 2010, and the stage of country music’s most famous show. Here’s just a sample of some of the fun facts about the Opry’s backstage area guides often share: •

Alan Jackson once delivered mail to the “Opry Post Office,” where he now has his own mailbox. It was one of his first jobs after having moved to Nashville to make it in the music business.

Little Jimmy Dickens’ mailbox is the only Opry member’s box not in alphabetical order, such that it is easily within reach for the 4’11” star.

The list of artists who’ve taped TV specials in Studio A, the working TV studio located within the Opry House, is vast and varied. Among them: Kenny Chesney, Elton John, Uncle Kracker, Loretta Lynn, James Taylor, and ZZ Top—not to mention all those guest stars on HEE HAW!

When the Opry moved from the Ryman Auditorium in 1974, the show took part of the Ryman with it. A round circle of wood from the Ryman sits center stage at the Opry House. Now, recent Opry additions such as Dierks Bentley and Blake Shelton can still perform on the stage where legends such as Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, and countless others once stood.

Daytime tours are available seven days a week. On evenings in which there is only one Opry performance, tours are also available immediately after the show. Opry House Backstage Pass Tours can be booked up to two weeks in advance at opry.com or by calling 800-SEE-OPRY. Tickets for tours are also available at the Opry House Box Office.

Grand Ole Opry Set For

Annual Birthday Celebration

N

othing says “Nashville” quite like a night at the Grand Ole Opry – the show that made country music famous—, and there’s no better season than autumn to visit the Opry Complex. After all, October is both the Opry’s birthday month and heralded as “country music month” from coast to coast. The Opry is set to celebrate its birthday this year with weeks of special shows and superstar appearances. Among those confirmed to visit the Opry stage this fall are Eric Church, Charlie Daniels Band, Rascal Flatts, Alan Jackson, Jamey Johnson, Ronnie Milsap, and Dolly Parton. Meanwhile, CMA award-winner Blake Shelton is set to welcome fans to the Opry House daily as the video host of Opry Backstage Pass Tours, a one-of-akind experience that gives guests a look behind the scenes of country’s most famous show. New for this year’s fall celebration, fans can get a taste of the Opry—literally—at the Opry Backstage Grill across the street from Gaylord Opryland Resort inside the Radisson Hotel at Opryland. The new restaurant combines the entertainment of the Opry with traditional Southern favorites including okra fries, barbecue, and even dumplins made from Loretta Lynn’s personal recipe. All the Opry fun dates back to 1925, when Nashville radio station WSM announcer George D. Hay introduced fiddle player Uncle Jimmy Thompson as the first performer on a new show called the

“WSM Barn Dance” and unwittingly paved the way for the world’s longest-running live radio show. Now in its 86th year, the show Hay started has launched countless country music careers and led the way for Nashville to become Music City. Early Opry performers such as Roy Acuff, Minnie Pearl, Ernest Tubb, and Bill Monroe became musical foundations for the Opry during its years in residence at the historic Ryman Auditorium, later welcoming to the stage artists who would become entertainment icons in their own right, including Patsy Cline, George Jones, and Bill Anderson. On a bittersweet Friday night in 1974, the Opry bid farewell to its longtime home at the Ryman. The following night, President Richard Nixon joined Roy Acuff onstage to welcome the Opry to its new permanent home – the Grand Ole Opry House. A piece of the Ryman stage was removed and placed in the center of the new stage at the Opry House, signifying that the heart of country music was still present in the new venue which would welcome new generations of stars to the stage including Dierks Bentley, Vince Gill, Josh Turner, and Carrie Underwood. 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, opry.com, or the Opry’s mobile app. Fans can also get more up-to-theminute information and news by following the Grand Ole Opry on Facebook and Twitter. Happy Birthday, Grand Ole Opry! september/october 2011

A Phenomenal 2 hour Performance


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 Conway Twitty to Sara Evans and Toby Keith. There is

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.

music city trivia & fun facts

DidYouKNOW? DID YOU KNOW… The amount on the price tag on Minnie Pearl’s hat was $1.98. The Centerville native and Grand Ole Opry star would eventually buy a home next door to the Governor’s Mansion on Curtiswood Lane in Nashville. DID YOU KNOW… That President Theodore Roosevelt coined the phrase “good to the last drop”, words that became a national slogan, after sipping coffee at Maxwell House Hotel. The coffee was a local product of the Cheek family. Their family home is now Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art. DID YOU KNOW… Nashville’s Athena Parthenos is the tallest indoor sculpture in the Western world. She stands an impressive 42 feet high in the temple of the Parthenon. DID YOU KNOW… Elvis recorded more than 200 of his songs at RCA’s Historic Studio B on Music Row. The red, blue and green lights found in the studio are a remnant from one of Elvis’s Christmas albums. Unable to get in the holiday spirit while recording in July, he was having trouble finishing the album. The crew solved the problem by installing holiday-colored lights, putting up an artificial Christmas tree in the corner and cranking the air conditioner up as high as it would go to create the festive atmosphere. DID YOU KNOW… Country singer Randy Travis was a cook and dishwasher at the Nashville Palace before he made it big. 28 getaway nashville and middle tennessee

DID YOU KNOW… Belle Meade Plantation was famous for breeding thoroughbred horses. Iroquois, bred at the Belle Meade Farm, was the first American horse to win the English Derby. In addition to Iroquois, there were two other famous horses that can trace their lineage back to Belle Meade: Seabiscuit and War Admiral, both made popular again by the 2011 best-selling novel. For generations removed, the 1930’s horses were descendents of the sires of Bonnie Scotland, Belle Meade’s prize horse, making the family rivalry at the Plantation run deep. DID YOU KNOW… In 1941, Nashville was granted the first FM license in the United States. Music City then became the first to enjoy static-free radio. DID YOU KNOW… The Frist Center for Visual Arts is located in what was formerly Nashville’s main post office, a city landmark, placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The Center went to great lengths to preserve the historical integrity of the building, as the building itself is a work of art. DID YOU KNOW… African-American artist and native Nashvillan Will Edmonson was the first black to be honored with a one-man exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Edmonson, the son of former slaves, created primitive limestone carvings of animals, angels, Biblical characters, and even celebrities. A photo spread of his work in Harper’s Bazaar led to the historic 1937 exhibit in New York City. Today, his works are on display at Cheekwood.


DID YOU KNOW… Nashville was founded on Christmas Eve 1779 along the banks of the Cumberland River. Two teams of pioneers set forth from the Carolinas to found the new city. Upon arrival, they immediately began building Fort Nashborough. Among the pioneers was Rachel Donelson, who would later become the wife of Andrew Jackson. DID YOU KNOW… The Hermitage: Home of President Andrew Jackson, the 7th president of the United States, boasts a driveway in the shape of a guitar. Legend says that the driveway was so shaped to please his daughter-in-law Emily. Nashvillians like to think it was a good sign of things to come. DID YOU KNOW… Standard Candy Company, founded in 1901, created the GooGoo, a true Nashville delight marrying peanuts, caramel, marshmallow and milk chocolate together for a tasty cluster of candy. Today Standard Candy Company uses more than 3 million pounds of chocolate a year. Legend has it that GOO stands for Grand Ole Opry. DID YOU KNOW… After one Sunday afternoon sermon, Captain Tom Ryman, infamous for breaking up tent revivals, became an instant convert and immediately began raising funds to build a church. Upon his death in 1904, the Union Gospel Tabernacle, the church he built, became known as the Ryman Auditorium. The famous hall would later host such performers as Enrico Caruso, Katharine Hepburn, and Bob Hope, and was home to the Grand Ole Opry for three decades. Not surprisingly, in both 2003 and 2004, the Ryman was named the best concert venue in the nation by Pollstar. The Ryman features the best music of today by artists of all genres.

DID YOU KNOW… Oprah Winfrey was raised in Nashville by her father Vernon Winfrey. While a sophomore at Tennessee State University (TSU), she was hired as a news anchor at WTVF-TV/News Channel 5, making her the first female and first African American in Nashville to hold such a job. DID YOU KNOW… That the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum is an architectural wonder in itself? One side of the building is a RKO-style radio tower while the main building, with windows resembling a piano keyboard, ends in a Cadillac tailfin-style flourish. DID YOU KNOW… President Richard Nixon was onstage when the Grand Ole Opry broadcast its first show in the new Opry House in 1974. The former President played “God Bless America” on the piano and Roy Acuff showed him how to yo-yo. DID YOU KNOW… Nashville is known the world over as “Music City” because WSM radio announcer David Cobb referred to Nashville with that nickname in 1950 on Red Foley’s NBC radio broadcast. DID YOU KNOW… The Hermitage Hotel which has hosted several political and entertainment figures including John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Al Capone since it opened its doors in 1910 is the only Five-Star, Five Diamond property in the state of Tennessee. DID YOU KNOW… The Union Station Hotel, a National Historic Landmark since 1977, was originally built in 1900 as the city’s railroad station. september/october 2011

The Tennessee Association of Craft Artists (TACA) will celebrate the 33rd Annual TACA Fall Craft Fair, beginning Friday, September 23rd through Sunday, September 25th. The TACA Fall Craft Fair is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission and parking are free and open to the public. The TACA Fall Craft Fair affords visitors the opportunity to engage in craft from the creation through the finished product, and from the emerging artist through the most accomplished. Craft media such as woodturning, stained glass, weaving and papermaking are on display and demonstrators are available to discuss the methods and processes in use. Visitors of all ages, tastes and budgets will enjoy the artistic and diverse collection of fine craft produced by the more than 200 artists from across the nation participating. Artists are set up in the shadow of the full-scale replica of the Parthenon, creating the perfect outdoor Broadway art gallery in the heart of Nashville. Finished pieces of work are available for purchase, all handmade by accomplished artists from across the nation, and emerging artists from across the state participate in the TACA Chapter Booth, where those who wish to have a taste of the Fair can exhibit in a shared space. Children and parents are encouraged to visit the TACA Kid’s Tent where non-profit partners from the mid-state area provide engaging and interesting craft projects. All activities are free and open to the public. Founded in 1965, the Tennessee Association of Craft Artists (TACA) is a statewide, non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging, developing and promoting crafts and craftspeople in Tennessee. TACA works to expose the residents of Tennessee to the art of fine craft, while providing a forum for creative and personal expression for the artists.

hen visiting Music City Nashville, be sure to add Schermerhorn Symphony Center to your list of “must see” locations. Inspired by some of the greatest concert halls in Europe, the Schermerhorn’s neo-classical design complements other local landmarks such as The Parthenon, the Tennessee State Capitol and the downtown Public Library, while the remarkable acoustics form the perfect backdrop for some of the finest symphonic performances in the country. With its graceful lines and striking architectural details, the building was named for the late conductor Kenneth Schermerhorn and features many iconic elements inspired by local history, musical symbols and Tennessee flora. Although Schermerhorn Symphony Center appears to have been part of the Nashville landscape for decades, it opened in 2006. Tours for the public are offered every Wednesday and Saturday at 1 p.m. by knowledgeable docents who share fun and interesting facts about the Nashville Symphony and the building. The tours last about 50 minutes and meet in the West Atrium, at the corner of Fourth Avenue and 1 Symphony Place. If you have a group with more than 10 people or would like to schedule a private tour, please call the Schermerhorn Symphony Center Tour Hotline at 615.687.6580 at least 72 hours in advance. Nashville Symphony presents 148 performances each year, and the shoebox-designed 1,844-seat Laura Turner Concert Hall is one of the few halls nationwide to feature natural interior light through 30 special soundproof windows. Designed to present a variety of musical genres, including classical, pops, cabaret, choral, jazz and blues performances, the hall provides vivid acoustical clarity, warmth and resonance specifically catering 52 getaway nashville and middle tennessee

to the sound of natural instruments. Enjoy the magic of music at a concert in the Schermerhorn, and hear why our hall provides the ultimate listening experience. Throughout much of the Nashville Symphony’s history, new American music has been a big part of the orchestra’s identity — fitting for an ensemble based in one of the world’s great music capitals. Over the years, the orchestra has commissioned, premiered and performed numerous works by contemporary composers, and in the coming 2011/12 season, the Nashville Symphony will debut works by such visionary American artists such as Béla Fleck, Terry Riley and Richard Danielpour. In addition, the orchestra will be joined by a long list of world-renowned guest artists, including Yo-Yo Ma, Emanuel Ax, Chris Botti, Marvin Hamlisch and Nashville’s own Tracy Silverman, Wynonna Judd and Larry Carlton. Since 2000, the Nashville Symphony has enjoyed a successful partnership with Naxos, the world’s leading classical music label, making us one of the most active recording orchestras in the country. Our releases have received no fewer than 13 GRAMMY® nominations and, in 2008, three GRAMMY® Awards for Made in America, a recording of works by composer Joan Tower. The winning categories included Best Classical Album and Best Orchestral Performance. Along with Riders In The Sky, the Symphony also recently earned two Western Music Association Awards for Album of the Year and Collaborative/Composite Album, for the CD Riders In The Sky – Lassoed Live at the Schermerhorn. When planning a trip to Nashville, be sure to include dinner and a concert at Schermerhorn Symphony Center, which offers several wonderful dining opportunities. Arpeggio is a gourmet four-course buffet open before all series concerts, as well as most special events. The more casual Symphony Café makes fresh panini sandwiches, salads and homemade soups each day, and after touring the hall, guests can enjoy eating inside the Schermerhorn or in the outdoor courtyard, complete with complimentary Wi-Fi. Take a few minutes at the end of your visit to purchase that perfect musical memento at our Symphony Store, which sells a great selection of CDs and DVDs, books, artwork, miniature instruments, sculptures of famous composers and accessories.
