The Ryman Auditorium is certainly a bit of history. Ennie and I were playing tourist today and we decided while I’m still between jobs — today we decided to go downtown to see the Ryman up close.

The amount of history in this one location is just mind-blowing. Even beyond its claim to be “the Mother Church of Country Music,” this is a venue that has seen it all. From politicians and preachers to rock and country.

We had a chance to stand on the stage from the wings.

Such an amazing feeling.
