Nashville, TN 37214

The first venue built specifically as a home to the Grand Ole Opry, the Grand Ole Opry House opened on March 16, 1974 with a ceremony attended by President Richard M. Nixon, who played piano and sang on the show that night.

The venue was temporarily closed after receiving substantial damage in the historic flooding of May, 2010, but after five months of around-the-clock restoration work, the house was ready for the show to return. In March, 2014, the Opry House celebrated 40 years as home of the show that made country music famous.

For the majority of the year, the Grand Ole Opry House is home to the Grand Ole Opry show. The Opry House also hosts other shows/events on occasion.


The Opry House features cushioned pew seating, like that found in many churches. For Opry shows, the seating capacity of the Opry House is 4,372. For all other events, seating capacity changes depending on the set-up of the event.
