5 Perks You Only Get as an Opry VIP

October 9, 2019

There’s no better way to get amped up to see the Grand Ole Opry than by making the VIP Experience part of your night. Don’t just see “the show that made country music famous,” enjoy the star treatment yourself. Here are the five things you can look forward to when you book your VIP Experience.

You Deserve the Opry Star Treatment
Kick off your night in our luxury lounge before an Opry show.


1. Consider it your own green room to unwind.

The Opry VIP experience takes place in our luxury lounge, which we like to call “The Circle Room” as an homage to the storied six-foot circle of wood that sits centerstage at the Opry. When an artist performs on that wooden circle, it feels like the most intimate place in the world — even in front of an audience of 4,400 people. The Circle Room is similarly intimate as the VIP experience is limited to just 100 guests. You can spend as much time as you’d like in the room from one hour before showtime through the end of intermission, so rest a spell on one of our plush couches.

2. Skip the line

Guests who partake in the VIP Experience get their own dedicated entrance into the venue. We’re rolling out the red carpet just for you!

3. Get a special visit from an Opry performer.

The Opry is a second home to the hundreds of country artists who perform here. No two paths to the Opry are the same, and you’ll get to hear firsthand from an artist about what it’s like to play country music’s grandest stage during your VIP Experience. Each night, one of the stars performing on the evening’s show will pop into The Circle Room to share favorite Opry memories and answer your questions about being a country artist. This up-close-and-personal experience is one you can’t get anywhere else!

4. Take advantage of countless photo ops to remember your night.

The Circle Room is a stunner — think dazzling chandeliers, bright marquee signs, and priceless portraits of your favorite country stars. You’ll want to take more than a few photos, so snap away and make yourself the envy of all your friends. Bonus: We’ll take a professional photo of you and your friends to keep.

5. Enjoy Southern bites and sips from our Opry kitchen.

What’s a show without snacks? The Circle Room’s got ’em with a rotating lineup of irresistible hors d’oeuvres like smoked brisket and pimento cheese sliders, vegetable crudité with boiled peanut hummus, and a variety of miniature cheesecakes. Wash it down with a local beer from Yee-Haw Brewing Company or a cocktail with a beloved Southern spirit like Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey or Bulleit Bourbon. Each VIP gets two complimentary drink tickets.
