Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium started out as a church before eventually becoming one of the world’s most prestigious concert venues. But the former full-time home of the Grand Ole Opry had its share of struggles along the way, falling into disrepair and even coming dangerously close to being demolished.
It’s a history you can witness yourself this week, as Circle Network debuts the new special Ryman 130: The Evolution of an Icon.
Carly Pearce, Kelsea Ballerini, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, The Beach Boys‘ Mike Love, Leslie Jordan and more share their love for the building known as the Mother Church of Country Music in the new hourlong show.
You can check out the documentary’s trailer now, ahead of its premiere Wednesday at 11 p.m. ET on Circle.
