Interesting? Sure. I'd love to see a concert there. Just not behind one of the columns that are set up amongst the pews. I think the $25 admittance fee is a little excessive. But, if you've never seen it, I suppose you probably should go ahead.

Interesting history of the Grand Ole Opry. The self guided tour save $10/person. We even sang in the radio booth. It’s free or a &15.charge if you want a copy. A free picture on stage is included in the price of admission.

We took the self guided tour but I have to say, it didn't give much bang for your buck. Better to go see a concert at this famous location.
