We arrived at our downtown hotel at almost 4:00, because we stopped on the way to eat. We rested only a few minutes before heading downtown to the storied Ryman Auditorium for the 7:00 PM performance of the Grand Ole Opry.

We sat in the balcony. Our seats were right on top of the action. On this night, we saw Vince Gill, Bill Anderson, Ricky Skaggs, Jeanne Seeley, Del McCoury, Jean Shepard, Connie Smith, Riders of the Sky, The Whites, and more. The performances were terrific! The sound system is state-of-the-art, as one would expect, and the two-hour concert flashed past much too quickly. We could have stayed all night!
The next day, the Cinderoo and I further explored Music City, prowling the vast---VAST expanse of the Opryland Hotel and walking for miles along Broadway's stretch of honky tonks.

You're not gonna believe this, but our meal of delicious strip steak, lasagna, salad, spaghetti, bread, cherry cheesecake and drinks came to the grand total of $28. I'm not kiddin'!
