When I was little, I loved watching Minnie Pearl in the Grand Ole Opry, with my granny. So, being in Nashville, I had to take the backstage tour… and even got to stand in the historic Circle! It really is overwhelming to think of all the talent that has been on that stage!
“You think about people like Hank Williams, who stood on that spot of wood, and Mr. Acuff, and, of course, George Jones and just about anybody you can think of who has made country music has been on that stage. That’s what makes you so nervous – to think about the historical part of the Opry and how it’s played such a part in country music.” -Opry member, Alan Jackson.
