The Ryman Auditorium, 5th Ave., North, Nashville, TN. I took this photograph before it was in the shadow of the 5th and Broadway project, that takes up an entire city block in downtown (a pretty cool place in its own right). I think, the nearly 130 year old building is one of the most beautiful structures I have ever seen. Some would call it an architectural marvel. I know it to be one of the top 25 places in the world to see live music. This is a special place for all Nashvillians and music fans worldwide, it's referred to as "The Mother Church of Country Music because The Grand Ole Opry show originated there. My first concert seated in the iconic pews was Jonny Lang more than 20 years ago. It's still today one of the best shows I've seen. And living in Nashville and attending a multitude of music festivals and dozens upon dozens of live music venues here, that is saying something! So, go to the Ryman, and go back often.
