Grand Ole Opry Adds ‘Nashville’ Exhibit

nashville-abcBeginning today (May 14), fans enjoying backstage tours of the Grand Ole Opry House can get a little closer to Nashville, the hit drama just renewed for a second season on ABC.

Charles (Chip) Esten, who plays Deacon Claybourne on the series, hosts a new video as part of the exhibit in Studio A of the Opry House. The exhibit also features show memorabilia including a sequined dress worn by Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) for her Opry debut in the first episode of the series; an ensemble worn by Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton); Barnes’ Gretsch White Falcon guitar; and more, including road cases, microphones, backstage passes, and laminates created for the Red Lips White Lies Tour featuring co-headliners Barnes and Jaymes.

The Grand Ole Opry House was featured prominently in the series premiere of Nashville, and is set to appear on screen again this Wednesday, when Scarlett O’Conner (Clare Bowen) makes her Opry debut. Opry House Studio A has been seen in the series’ first season as both a rehearsal hall used by Jaymes and the site of a political fundraiser.

Grand Ole Opry House Backstage Pass Tours are available seven days a week through October and after most Opry performances. Tickets and information are available at, 800-SEE-OPRY, and at the Opry House Box Office.
