Oh Cumberland!!!

Nashville is drowning in the Cumberland river. The Opry has been moved back to its old home place. Our thoughts go out to any and all of the great musicians who may be effected by the floods.

From the Opry’s website

Due to heavy flooding in Nashville, Tenn. including the Grand Ole Opry Entertainment Complex, this week’s Grand Ole Opry performances have been moved from the Grand Ole Opry House to other Nashville venues. The Tuesday Night Opry performance scheduled for May 4th will take place at the War Memorial Auditorium, 301 6th Ave. North, Nashville, Tenn.  Weekend performances will move to the historic Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville. Thursday’s performance of Opry Country Classics will remain at the Ryman as previously scheduled. Show times for all shows remain at 7:00 p.m. Both the War Memorial and the Ryman are former homes of the Opry.The Opry House suffered damage as a result of the record-breaking rains and subsequent flooding in Nashville.  The last time the Opry had to relocate was in 1975 to Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium, just one year after the opening of the Grand Ole Opry House.  That move was also caused by Cumberland River flooding.
