After opening it's doors in 1974, The Grand Ole Opry House has been the home of The Opry, the longest-running radio program in history. During the Opry House's restoration, past homes like The Ryman Auditorium and the TPAC War Memorial Auditorium have hosted the show.
The Opry House's integral wooden circle, taken from its Ryman stage in 1974, sat submerged on the Opry stage before the waters receded. This oak circle, painstakingly refurbished, came back home in August and will set the stage for the "Country Comes Home" event. The return to the Opry House comes just in time to celebrate the Grand Ole Opry's 85th birthday, and the celebration will continue throughout 2011.
