Ryman Auditorium

October 15, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

This past weekend I spent a few days in Nashville, Tennessee. Even though I do love most types of music I'm not really big a fan of the current country music scene, but I do enjoy visiting Nashville because of the rich history there.  In May of 2011 I attended my first concert at the Ryman Auditorium.  The alternative band Interpol was playing that night, and I was so excited to see a one of my favorite bands play a show there. The moment I walked thought the doors I could feel the history in the building.  It was the home of The Grand Ole Opry from 1943-1974 and during the Interpol show I was fully aware of the long list of legends who had been preformed on that stage in the past.  Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Elvis, just to name a few.  Even Harry Houdini preformed his act there back in 1924. In the spring of 2012 I saw Jack White play there, and once again I was struck by the beauty and history of this building. This was my third visit to the Ryman, and every time I walk through those doors I think about how much has happened in this building.  If these walls could talk they would have quite a story to tell.  And as far as I am concerned there is no better venue to see your favorite artist preform. So I could not visit Nashville again without taking a tour of the building. I have a deep love of music and history so it was a joy to tour and photograph this historic place.  This is the "Mother Church of Country Music" through my eyes.
