    At the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, tradition beckons

    By Alice Short
    January 10, 2015

    This city is blanketed with churches. Downtown Presbyterian, Cross Point, First Baptist, Midtown Fellowship. But many of those who come here seek a different kind of spiritual kinship that can be found only at local shrines devoted to music: Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ole Opry House, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Historic RCA Studio B.

    If these places were ranked in order of importance, purists might point to the Ryman, which was built in 1892 and housed the Grand Ole Opry from 1943 until 1974.

    But it was the relatively new Opry House that beckoned on a hot August night.

    I came to this city in north-central Tennessee for a conference and figured I'd better take advantage of some of the local offerings during my four days here.

    Although my personal playlist doesn't include much country music, I thought it would be disrespectful to visit and not experience the Opry, a live radio show and musical extravaganza that started nine decades ago as the "WSM Barn Dance" and has featured entertainers as diverse as the Fruit Jar Drinkers and Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys, Boxcar Willie and Carrie Underwood.
