IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT THE MUSIC – NASHVILLE , TENNESSEE . THE GRAND OLE OPRY .

You  can’t  believe  that  you  and  your  sister  are  really  in  Nashville ,  Tennessee  for your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour .

You  and  your  sister  didn’t  want  to  see  the  Country  Music  Hall  of  Fame ,  but  you  all  were  told  by  the  front  desk  clerks  of the  hostel  where  you’re  staying  at  to see  the  Grand  Ole  Opry .

So here  you both  are .

The  coming  attractions  board  tells  you  what concerts  are   coming   and  who’s  performing .

This  place  is  different  from  the  Country  Music  Hall  of  Fame .

They  don’t  have  concerts  there .

There’s  a  big  guitar  in   back  of  you  and it lets    you know  where  you  are ,  the  home  of  Country  Music .

You  JUST  have  to  get  a  picture  of  this  guitar .

It’s  HUGE  to put  it  mildly .

Your  sister  can’t  stop  laughing  at  how  funny  you  look  next  to  it .

You  look  really  small  and at four  feet  eleven  inches ,  you’re  small  enough .

When  you  finally  get the right  picture ,  the two  of  you  go in  for  your  tour .

Judging  by   the   number  of  people  waiting  in  line  to get in ,  this  is  one  of  the  city’s  most  popular  tours .

You  both  take  a  seat  to watch  a video  about  the  Opry  House .

This  tour  might  not  be  that  boring  after  all .

When  they finally  take  everyone  inside  the  building ,  the  tour  guide   shows  you  some  of  the  mail boxes  of  the  singers .

She  tells  you  that they  do  answer  their  mail ,  by the  way .

The tour  guide  then points  to  a wall  full  of  plaques .

These  plaques  go  on  the  wall  when  someone  is  elected  to  the  Grand  Ole  Opry  Hall  of  Fame .

The  two  of  you  are  so  excited  when  you  see  some  of  the  names  that  you  both  recognize  that  you  almost  get  left  behind  on  the  tour .

You’re  too  busy  snapping  pictures  of  the  plaques  and mailboxes .

Much  to your  surprise ,  you  are  liking  this  tour .

When you  look  inside    the seats  remind  you  of  church  pews .

That’s  because  this  was  a  church  at  one  time .

The  highlight  of  the  tour  comes  near  the  end  of  the  tour .

You’ve  gone  backstage ,  seen  dressing  rooms ,  plaques ,  pictures  and  mailboxes .

It’s  now  time  to  stand  up  on  that  famous  stage .

The ”  circle  ”  where  so  many  country  stars  have  performed .

The  two  of  you  wait  your  turn  to  take  a  picture  on the stage .

The  tour  is now  over  and the two  of  you  head  to  the  gift shop  for  your  momento  of the  tour .

It’s  the  picture  of  the  two  of  you  on  the  stage .

You  want  to  go  back  to  the  Opry  Mills  Shopping  Mall  and  do  more  shopping ,  but instead  the two  of  you  just  take  the  bus  back  to  the  hostel .

This  is  a  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  and  you  have  a  Tennessee  Titans  football  game  to go to  tonight .
