Music City wouldn’t be so aptly named without a forum for famous shows and live music performances. Originally conceived as a religious gathering site and built in 1892 by a Nashville riverboat captain and evangelist, the space garnered historic importance as it debuted and brought in talent such as the Blue Grass Boys, Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong, Johnny Cash, and Neal Diamond.
Today, Ryman Auditorium continues to pack the seats with music lovers who want to experience world class entertainers as they continue to flock to Nashville for its unique style. This year, expect favorites such as The Doobie Brothers, REO Speedwagon, Ringo Starr, and Toto.
