    1. Definitely something or someone still hanging out at the Ryman. In 2012 my best friend and I visited along with her dad. As she and her dad went off exploring, I continued on by myself. Reading one of the historical plaques, I felt as if someone was standing behind my right shoulder. As I turned to see if I was blocking someone’s view I felt a cold rush and to my surprise there was nobody there.

      The cold chills were weird, especially since it was 95 degrees in the middle of August.

    2. I found this photo on my camera. I didn’t take it. I’m not sure who this woman was but she was happy to be at the Opry! She wasn’t there in person, so I belive it to be a ghost!
