Nashville’s Opryland Hotel Underwater – Moves Shows to Ryman

Opryland Hotel Flooded: May 03, 2010

The Opryland Hotel‘s Delta, Cascades, and Gardens suffered up to ten feet of water after flooding hit Nashville, Tennessee. This has forced the staff to change venues for the next few events and relocate to the Ryman Auditorium. “While we ourselves are shaken by the impact of the flooding of the Opry House and throughout the area, it is important that Nashville’s most treasured tradition continues with this week’s shows,” said Grand Ole Opry Vice President Pete Fisher. “We look forward to coming together both as the Opry family and as a great American city just as we have every week for nearly 85 years. Our hearts go out to all of those affected in the Middle Tennessee area.”
