Rules of the House......

For anyone who hasn't visited us yet at the Opry House, we thought we'd include the
"Rules of the House" which are posted on-site. This isn't word-for-word, but it's close and
you'll get the general idea. We appreciate all the folks who come out to enjoy a relaxed wholesome
evening with us and our family and we want everyone to be comfortable, so here it goes.....

1. NO TOBACCO PRODUCTS. This includes dip,snuff,cigars,cigarettes,peace pipes, and anything
else you can possibly fit in this category.
2. NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. And, if you come in smelling like the ABC store, you will
be asked to leave.
3. We are a family establishment for people of all ages. PLEASE USE RESPECTFUL
LANGUAGE. We'd hate to have to call your Mama !



Come on out and join us Tuesday August 7th for our monthly Bluegrass
Musicians' Jam Session ! The fun starts at 7:00 pm and the door will open shortly before that. As always, there's no fee to come in and play a while ! Snacks will be for sale, however. Please remember, we have a strict "No Tobacco" policy....this includes ALL THAT STUFF, so leave it at home, fellas ! And CONGRATULATIONS to our good friend
Larry Mathis who won the first drawing for a free admission pass to an upcoming show. His name was pulled at the show on July 20 ! Mark Christopher of WCGC was on hand for that show, and gave out free passes to the big festival coming up soon in Tennessee ! (See what all you miss if you don't come ?!)

Charlotte Trip Advisor Review

We'd like to thank Bud41 of Charlotte Trip Advisor for the great feedback! Being a new venue in Belmont, we believe it's important to get the community involved.

Please note that the Grand Opening weekend was free, but we will be charging $8.00 admission for adults, with kids 10 and under free. Doors will be opened at 6:30 . No early seating. Please remember we are a small, intimate setting and seating is limited. Our snack bar offers old-fashioned bottled Coke, canned soda, bottled water, candy bars, chips, ice cream, etc.
We'd like to thank everyone who came out for Grand Opening weekend and wish we had more room to accomodate everyone ! Remember to listen to Belmont's own WCGC for announcements as well, and many thanks to bluegrass and gospel radio show host Mark Christopher for his help.

Grand Opening Weekend

The Scruggs Opry House had its Grand opening on April 13th and April 14th 2007. Friday Night featured Lamons Recording Artist Brian Jackson and Local Southern Gospel Quartet "For His Praise Quartet" from Belmont's First Baptist Church.
