CELEBRATING 130 YEARS WITH MORE MUSIC
& EXPERIENCES THAN EVER BEFORE

 

Since 1892, Ryman Auditorium has been hallowed ground for artists, seekers, rebels and trailblazers that offers an experience and acoustics like no other. From Houdini to comedian Charlie Chaplin, Teddy Roosevelt to MLK, and from Dolly Parton to Lizzo, this stage has welcomed diverse acts and music of all genres, creating the ‘Soul of Nashville.’

What began as the Union Gospel Tabernacle constructed by steamboat Captain Thomas Ryman as a place where all could gather and worship, is now recognized as one of the best performance halls in the world, the stage where bluegrass was born, the ‘Mother Church of Country Music,’ and a place where both artists and fans come to experience that sacred, intimate something that one feels in their bones at this iconic landmark. Call it spiritual, call it mythical, call it the abundance of music, history and magic that happens every week from this stage.

We invite you to join us at the Mother Church as we celebrate our 130th anniversary this year with more residencies, shows, new tour experiences, events, giveaways and so much more!
