Legendary Nashville radio icon WSM is commonly acknowledged as the most important radio station in history with regard to Country and American roots music and the station that turned Nashville into Music City. WSM’s long history of quality live programming, most famously the Grand Ole Opry since 1925, includes being known as the place where bluegrass was born.

WSM currently operates out of the former Roy Acuff and Minnie Pearl museums adjacent to the Grand Ole Opry House. The studio itself is located within the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, and visitors to the hotel may look into the studio 24 hours a day, provided the curtains are open, which they usually are.
