Country music gained its popularity through a radio broadcast that started in 1925 with live performers. That radio show evolved to become what is known as the Grand Ole Opry. With the Opry as one of the biggest reasons country music is popular today, it represents the genre well and embodies the type of space created for 5th Avenue Records. Two of their locations are still in use today, the Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ole Opry House. These theaters are places where country music artists have a home where they can perform on a flexible schedule. The audience is full of country music fans, some that have traveled many miles to see this special place. These theaters are full of tradition and music, the perfect pair to be inspired by.
The Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ole Opry House both have the feeling of a warm, familiar and welcoming place. This is unusual because many of the venues where music is performed feel have lots of hard metals and feel distant and cold. The Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ole Opry House both have wood as one of the dominant materials used in the space. The arrangement of both floors are formulated off of the idea of the auditorium and how everything is centered around a focal point, the stage and radiates out. This will help to give a hierarchy to the different areas used in each space.
