Atlanta, GA – The Mother Church of Country Music will now be easier for tourists and visitors to reach thanks to renovations that were announced during a press conference this morning for the Historic Ryman Auditorium. But don’t worry, the acclaimed auditorium will be left undisturbed. People will be able to experience the Ryman in a brand-new way thanks to these changes.
The project, which only affects the non-historic part of the building, will include, among other upgrades, a rearranged lobby, a special events area, more restroom accessibility, a café area, and a larger retail space. (source)
The Project asked country music legends Marty Stewart, Vince Gill, and Ricky Skaggs for advice on how to broaden its scope and accessibility.
The Ryman will continue to host a full entertainment lineup as soon as work gets going.
The estimated cost of the project is $14 million. The task might be finished in time for the 2015 CMA Music Festival.
The Ryman Skye has become much more well-known and recognizable in recent years as a result of Nashville movies being filmed there and nearby.
We are eager to see the new space!
