Tennessee residents will get a free, up-close look at the newly-renovated Ryman Auditorium this Sunday (June 28) at a Community Appreciation Day sponsored by Nissan and SunTrust Bank.
Self-guided tours will be available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with presentation of a valid Tennessee ID at the Ryman box office and will include admission to the new theater experience “Soul Of Nashville,” which tells the Ryman’s history as legendary performances come to life on all sides of the room. The story of the historic building’s rebirth after near demolition is celebrated with a finale featuring Darius Rucker, The Fisk Jubilee Singers, Vince Gill, and Sheryl Crow.
Five new exhibits,“Workin’ on a Building,” “Showplace of the South,” “Mother Church of Country Music,” “Ryman Stage to Screen” and “Ryman Renaissance” will also be open and there will be free live music on the plaza outside the new Café Lula restaurant as well. And Nissan drivers who show a key or SunTrust clients who show a SunTrust-branded ATM or credit card at the Ryman gift shop will receive 10 percent off on their purchase during the special day.
“The community takes great pride in the Ryman,” said Sally Williams, Ryman Auditorium General Manager. “We’re grateful to Nissan and SunTrust for providing Tennesseans the opportunity to experience the Soul Nashville and our other new exhibits.”
