Our visit to Nashville. #3 and #4 are of us sitting in front of the original Grand Ole Opry. It's now called the Ryman Auditorium. There's a neat story behind that. The man that built the Ryman Auditorium was a wealthy man, Thomas Ryman, who owned a lot of bars and other unreputable businesses in Nashville. There was a big revival going on in town. He was afraid that the revival would hurt his business so he went to the revival to break it up, but found Jesus instead. He had the Ryman Auditorium built for church services and named it the Union Gospel Tabernacle. It later became the Grand Ole Opry where numerous country music legends performed over the years.
