When the world-famous Ryman Auditorium closed its doors to country music performances, a section of the stage was removed and installed here, at the new home of the Grand Ole Opry. Country music artists, past and present, consider performing on this stage as one of the highest of honors that can ever be bestowed upon them, which is why some of the music industry's all-time greats have graced the Opry at some point of their careers. The 45,000 square foot (4180 square meters) building seats 4,400 people. The stage markets itself as 'The Show that Made Country Music Famous' and plays host to the prestigious Country Music Association Awards, which is when the whole place ornaments itself with the help of its star-studded audience. Bluegrass, gospel, Americana and folk music concerts are also held here.
