Grand Old Opry


Since completing a teaching assignment in Nashville, we have been in sightseeing and visiting mode.  One of the reasons we decided to stay in Nashville for two weeks was to take advantage of the local country music color and some the historical sites.

A trip to Nashville would not be complete without a visit to the Grand Ole Opry. The Grand Ole Opry is a weekly Saturday night country music radio program broadcast live on WSM radio in Nashville.  It is the oldest continuous radio program in the U.S., having been broadcast since 1925.  The Ryman Auditorium in  downtown Nashville was home to the Opry until 1974, when the show moved to the 4,400-seat Grand Ole Opry House, located several miles to the east of downtown Nashville.  It is located in a huge complex that includes the Opry Mills Mall and the expansive Opryland Hotel.

Grand Ole Opry  Walking from the parking lot to the Opry House, Dale notices an Interiors by Decorating Den van.  With no name on the vehicle, only a PA phone number, she could not ID the owner.  Never did find her that night.  But she left one of our cards on the windshield.  Later on in the week, she got an email from a franchisee in Pennsylvania, Barbara Tabak.  It was her van!  She enjoyed the Opry as well.
