birth of bluegrass

Does anyone else find it a little weird that they’re labelling the Ryman as the birthplace of bluegrass with the Station Inn right down the street?

I’m just sayin’..

    Not at all. The Station Inn didn’t come along until the early 70’s. It was at the Ryman Auditorium in 1945 when Earl Scruggs first went onstage with Bill Monroe that bluegrass, as we know it today, was considered to be born.

    I’m very sentimental about the Station Inn. My life changed when I walked in there January 27, 1987, and I first laid eyes on the old fart that would become my husband. It is a great place.
