Historic Photos of the Opry: Ryman Auditorium 1974 by Jim McGuire, Marty Stuart

Called The Mother Church of Country Music, the Ryman Auditorium saw a historic chapter come to a close in 1974 when it closed its doors on 5th Avenue to move into new quarters at Opryland USA. Nashville photographer Jim McGuire had full access to the Ryman and shares over 100 stunning black and white photographs with chapter introductions and captions from the last year of this landmark and the most famous show in country music. Most of the photographs have never been published so come share the memories of this institution and your favorite legendary country music stars. With the foreword written by Garrison Keillor, and an introduction by Opry legend Marty Stuart, this book is a must have for any country music lover

About the Author

Born in 1941 and raised in rural New Jersey, Jim McGuire nurtured a love of hillbilly music at an early age. His first photographs were made as an Air Force photographer in Vietnam in 1964. Before moving to Nashville in 1972, he had a studio in New York City for seven years. Since then he has photographed more than 400 album covers and hundreds of black-and-white portraits of Nashville musicians spanning thirty-five years. (A traveling exhibition of the "Nashville Portraits" is currently making the rounds.) He has a passion for vintage woodie station wagons that he restores and drives and for horse racing, not necessarily in that order. When not at the track, McGuire shares a downtown loft in Nashville with his dog Django.
