Chartered in 1964, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is one of the

vernacular music. It features the world's largest repository of country
music artifacts, photographs and vintage videos. The same collection is

Church’ of country music in the US and is regarded as one of CitySearch's
‘Best Places to Hear Live Music.’ This iconic auditorium was formerly known
as Grand Ole Opry House and Union Gospel Tabernacle because it used to host
the Grand Ole Opry, which was a 93-year old weekly country-music stage
concert that ran from 1943 to 1974.
