The Grand Ole Opry schedule has expanded from its original Saturday-only broadcast to include several weekly concerts. The original Grand Ole Opry concert, which was popularized by radio, takes place on Saturdays at 7 pm, and in addition to listening to the broadcast, you can also get tickets to see the live show.
If Saturday doesn’t work, however, another Grande Ole Opry concert is also scheduled for Friday nights at 7 pm, and from March to December there is a concert on Tuesday nights at the same time as well. These shows at the Grand Ole Opry showcase country music, bluegrass, folk music, and gospel. You can buy Grand Ole Opry tickets through the show’s box office, though if you have your heart set on a certain date, it’s best to check ahead, before your vacation in Nashville.
If you'd like to hear sounds from the history of country music, consider attending one of the Opry Country Classics concerts that are on the Grand Ole Opry schedule on Thursdays at various periods throughout the year. This concert highlights the classic country songs that made the genre famous. And if you're planning to get Grand Ole Opry tickets, why not make it a combo ticket with seats to both the Grand Ole Opry and the Opry Country Classics concerts?
In addition, keep an eye out for special exclusive shows at the Grand Ole Opry, like the Birthday Bash in October. A package deal to the birthday party includes seats to the Grand Ole Opry, a tour of the Opry House, tickets to the Birthday Bash, and admission to other local historic attractions. If you’re interested in learning about music in Nashville, this is the place to be.
