Opryland USA: Images of Modern America
The new book from Stephen W. Phillips, "Opryland USA: Images of Modern America" explores the rise and fall of the beloved Nashville, Tennessee theme park. Opryland USA operated from May 27, 1972 until December 31, 1997, attracting millions of visitors each year and giving many celebrities their first taste of show business. The park consisted of nine themed areas, dozens of rides, and Broadway-caliber shows featuring live bands and orchestras. As the Home of American Music, Opryland USA still lives on in the hearts and minds of those who visited its wooded trails, lazy streams, exciting attractions, and toe-tapping performances.
