Judge Hay liked the Fruit Jar Drinkers and asked them to appear last on each show because he wanted to always close each segment with "red hot fiddle playing. When the Opry began having square dancers on the show, the Fruit Jar Drinkers always played for them. In , Uncle Dave Macon, a Tennessee banjo player who had recorded several songs and toured on the vaudeville circuit became its first real star.
The phrase "Grand Ole Opry" was first uttered on radio on December 10, That evening, as he was introducing the show and DeFord Bailey, his first guest, George Hay said the following words:. They built a larger studio, but it was still not large enough. After several months with no audiences, [ clarification needed ] National Life decided to allow the show to move outside its home offices.
The Opry then moved to the War Memorial Auditorium , a downtown venue adjacent to the State Capitol , and a cent admission fee was charged to try to curb the large crowds, but to no avail. In June , the Opry moved to Ryman Auditorium. One hour of the Opry was nationally broadcast by the NBC Red Network from to , and for much of its run, it aired one hour after the program that had inspired it, National Barn Dance.
Gannaway's Stars of the Grand Ole Opry was the first television show shot in color. On October 2, , a teenage Elvis Presley had his only Opry performance. Although the audience reacted politely to his revolutionary brand of rockabilly music , Opry manager Jim Denny told Presley's producer Sam Phillips after the show that the singer's style did not suit the program. In the s, as the hippie counterculture movement spread, the Opry maintained a strait-laced, conservative image with "longhairs" not being featured on the show.
The Byrds were a notable exception. Country rock pioneer Gram Parsons , who was a member of The Byrds at the time, was in Nashville to work on the band's country rock album, Sweetheart of the Rodeo. Another artist that ran afoul of the Opry ' s stringent standards was Jerry Lee Lewis , who made his first and to date only appearance on the show on January 20, , after several years of success on the country charts.
Lewis was given two conditions for his appearance — no rock and roll and no profanity — and he proceeded to disregard both, even referring to himself as a certain unairable maternal insult at one point.
In a continuous minute set, Lewis played a mixture of his rock and roll hits and covers of other singers' country songs. It has been said that he was bitter about how he was treated when he first arrived in Nashville in , and he supposedly used his Opry appearance to exact revenge on the Nashville music industry. Country legend Johnny Cash , who made his Opry debut on July 5, and met his future wife June Carter Cash on that day, was banned from the program in after, drunkenly, smashing the stage lights with the microphone stand.
Cash commented on the incident years later: "I don't know how much they wanted me in the first place," he says, "but the night I broke all the stage lights with the microphone stand, they said they couldn't use me anymore. So I went out and used it as an excuse to really get wild and ended up in the hospital the third time I broke my nose. Ryman Auditorium was home to the Opry until Already 51 years old at the time the Opry moved there, the Ryman was beginning to suffer from disrepair as the downtown neighborhood around it fell victim to increasing urban decay.
Despite these shortcomings, the show's popularity continued to increase, and its weekly crowds were outgrowing the 3,seat venue. The Opry's operators wanted to build a new air-conditioned theater, with greater seating capacity, ample parking, and the ability to serve as a television production facility. The ideal location would be in a less urbanized part of town to provide visitors with a safer, more controlled, and more enjoyable experience.
The theme park opened to the public on June 30, ,  well ahead of the 4,seat Opry House, which debuted nearly two years later, on Saturday, March 16, Opening night was attended by sitting U. President Richard Nixon , who played a few songs on the piano. The theme park was closed and demolished following the season, but the Grand Ole Opry House remains in use. The immediate area around it was left intact, even throughout the construction of Opry Mills , which opened in May The Grand Ole Opry House was also the home of the Country Music Association Awards from to , and hosted three weeks of tapings for the long-running game show Wheel of Fortune in On December 21, , the backstage band room was officially named the Jimmy Capps Music Room in honor of Capps's 60th anniversary on the Opry.
Following the departure of the Opry, Ryman Auditorium sat mostly vacant and decaying for 20 years. The plans were abandoned, and the building remained standing with an uncertain future. Despite the absence of performances, the building remained a tourist attraction with tours. In and , Emmylou Harris performed a series of concerts there and released some of the recordings as an album entitled At the Ryman.
The concert and album's high acclaim renewed interest in reviving Ryman Auditorium as an active venue. Beginning in September , Gaylord Entertainment initiated a full renovation of the Ryman, restoring it to a world-class concert hall that reopened with a broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion on June 4, On Sunday, October 18, , the Opry held a benefit show at Ryman Auditorium, marking its return to the venue for the first time since its final show on March 15, Beginning in November , the Opry was held at Ryman Auditorium for three months, partly due to the ongoing construction of Opry Mills.
