In The Wake Of Nashville's Floods, Opry Gets A First-Class Restoration
Renovations in the venue world are common and ongoing, but few are attached to such passion and history as was the resurrection of Nashville's Grand Ole Opry House.
The Opry House, home of the Grand Ole Opry and other live entertainment events, was ravaged by floods that hammered Nashville the first weekend of May 2010.
Flood coverage carried shocking images of the Opry's lower level under water and boats navigating the aisles. Reports told not only of the waterlogged stage and seats, but of destroyed dressing rooms and irreplaceable Opry memorabilia and history.
