Then you board the General Jackson, the world’s grandest showboat. It offers a delicious meal and world-class entertainment while cruising the majestic Cumberland River. After your cruise you stop at Opry Mills for a lyrical adventure at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. See and hear the music from the 1950’s when families gathered around their radio listening to the Grand Ole Opry. Hear the creativity flow as the lyrics carry you to a time and place where Rock & Roll was all that mattered, Jerry Garcia & Janis Joplin are here celebrating the summer of 69. You can dance, sing, and take a selfie with yesterday’s music legends and today’s Top 40’s icons.
Dinner is provided by the Grand Ole Opry who manages the Opry Backstage Grill on Music Valley Drive. They serve signature Southern Cooking paired perfectly with Live Country Music. Here your love of food and your love of music will meet in our casually cool restaurant. And at the Opry Backstage Grill, your waitress might even jump on the stage and sing a country favorite or two.
Next, it’s showtime. For more than 85 years, country’s best performers have mesmerized audiences at the Grand Ole Opry – a continuously broadcast Live Radio Show. Each Opry features a variety of new stars, superstars and the legends of music. You’ll hear the very best in country with a little bluegrass and comedy added in. This is live and unrehearsed, you never see the same show twice.
The 1927 Bristol Sessions were the ‘Big Bang of Country Music’ and you visited the birthplace, the very spot where the explosion first sparked; now tonight you find yourself seated in the center of this ever expanding Musical Universe filled with brilliant lights and glorious lyrics. (B,L,D)
