Grand Ole Opry

If you’re a country music performer, the day you make it to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry is the day you’ve made it! The Grand Ole Opry started on radio in Nashville, Tennessee (where it still originates) in 1925. It was first heard on network radio in 1939. The show finally made it to TV on October 15, 1955.

The ABC network carried just one hour of Opry (it continued through the night) live from Nashville. This arrangement only lasted for one year; although the Grand Ole Opry was used as a staging arena for other successful shows like Classic Country Featuring Stars of the Grand Ole Opry and Hayride.

Then, miracle of miracles for country music fans, Grand Ole Opry came to TV to stay. In 1985, the Nashville Network (TNN) positioned the show on Saturday nights. In 2001, Opry was carried on Country Music Televison (CMT). In 2003, Opry (Grand Ole Opry Live) moved to GAC (Great American Country).

The Grand Ole Opry made it! And it looks like it will continue in Nashville, regardless of which cable TV channel it is on at the moment.

Even if you're not into country music (i detest it) the hotel at the Grand Ole Opry is pretty damn sweet!

Ehhh, I don't like the grand ole opry or what I call a small piece of stage and a name.

BTW, never take a woman to the opry mills mall. I liked the old amusement park better.
