Grand Ole Opry Re-Opens After Flood Damage

Ad Feedback

Some of country music's finest gathered to celebrate the re-opening of the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville after five months and $20 million worth of repairs.

The Nashville floods destroyed much of the historic building and its contents in May.

Tuesday night's show was appropriately named "Country Comes Home." Performers included some big stars like Keith Urban, Martina McBride, Trace Adkins, and Brad Paisley.

"I think the flood goes completely unnoticed if this building's not underwater," Paisley said. "I think everybody in the country goes, 'Yeah, there's another flood,' if this doesn't happen. It's completely metaphorical in it's destruction as it is in it's rebirth."

The recent floods dumped four feet of water on the Grand Ole Opry, but after it's make-over, new pictures now align the walls.

One signature item recovered in the flood was the Opry's six-foot circle of oak, which has since been returned to its place at center stage.
