After being forced to close its doors last May after a major flood hit most of Nashville, the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center reopened Monday.
Gaylord Entertainment spent approximately $270 million to repair and upgrade the 2,881-room hotel. New additions to the property include a suite named after the late Grand Ole Opry star Porter Wagoner and several new restaurants.
An event is scheduled for later this week to commemorate the reopening with performances by Keith Urban, Trace Adkins, Sheryl Crow and Craig Morgan.
The Grand Ole Opry House, which was also heavily damaged by the floods, reopened in September. However the
nearby Opry Mills mall is closed due to insurance issues related to the property.
