After the tour we strolled down to broadway strip and had supper at Rippy's...and strolled from bar to bar listening to some great bands...and its off to the Opry for 7pm. The architecture in the Ryman building is something else. It used to be a church, them hosted the Grand Ole Opry until 1974 when it moved to the new opry house. Below are some pics of the stars homes, and of the performance this evening..the lineup was:
Ricky Skaggs, George Hamilton IV and V (his son) Jeannie Shepard, The Whites (Ricky S's wife is a member of this group), Little Jimmy Dickens, Jesse McReynolds & The Virginia Boys, Janie Fricke, Jim Ed Brown, Connie Smith, Dailey & Vincent, Diamond Rio, Jan Howard, Mike Snider and Brad Paisley...so it was a great lineup of performers...
Homes we saw today...can't remember who they all belonged to but will name the ones I can remember:
Dolly Parton's home
Alan Jackson's House
