Smoky Mountain Opry Review ~

If you are planning a trip to the Pigeon Forge area in Tennessee anytime soon, you simply do not want to miss checking out a show at the Smoky Mountain Opry! We went a couple of weeks ago and had tons of fun checking out the attractions and shows but I have to say that the Smoky Mountain Opry was quite possibly my favorite thing that we went to in Pigeon Forge.

Lion King’s “The Circle of Life”

I know what you are thinking – it’s all country music, right? No. If you are not a country fan, don’t worry, they have you covered, too. When Jay and I visited Pigeon Forge a couple of weeks ago, we saw a show at the opry that is best described as a variety show. There was a magician, lots of singers {performing pop hits {Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Adele and more} country songs {Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Carrie Underwood, Charlie Daniels Band and more} and Broadway tunes {Rent, Les Miserables, Mary Poppins, Lion King and more}, dancers, aerial acrobats, comedians {Slim Chance is crazy funny, by the way} and a magician with lions and tigers! No bears, oh my! :P

Our Thoughts On The Smoky Mountain Opry

We absolutely loved it. Jay loved when Les Miserables was performed and said that the singer’s voice was phenomenal. Slim Chance {the comedian} was also one of his favorite performances. I have to admit that I don’t care much for stand up comedians for the most part but Slim Chance was SUPER funny!

I especially enjoyed when they did the Broadway performances. I was not expecting to see anything like that and thoroughly enjoyed it. I agree with Jay about Les Miserable. Oh my gosh! That was amazing! I especially enjoyed when Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” was performed. The lady who sang that has an AWESOME voice. Also, something really cool: scenes from Titanic were displayed across her dress as she sang! LOVED THIS! I also really enjoyed the aerial acrobats and all of the tributes to the classic country artists. Of course. :)

Scenes from Titanic displayed on her dress as she sang! See Kate Winslet?

There is nothing that either of us could think of that wasn’t good. The entire show is great, with excellent choreography and very talented performers. There were really so many types of performances in the show, as well as so many performers, that I am sure that I am leaving someone out.

  1. Wow, that looks like a great time! I love that there is something for the entire family.

  2. This looks like so much fun, I would love to go!!

  3. Wow – it appears there really IS something for everybody to love. I have wanted to visit for a while and my Mom REALLY wants to visit. Now that I see my kids won’t be bored beyond tears, thereby nagging me into drinking and drowning my tears in old country music, I think this might be an ideal destination for us to have an extended weekend get-away this year.

  4. Wow must have been a great event for the entire family. Looks so glamorous!

  5. This looks like a super fun place to visit! My inlaws live in TN so we might have to put this on our list of places to go when we see them again!

  6. What a fun place to go! I have family in TN so we might have to check it out when we visit.

  7. Great pictures! This looks like so much fun. What a great review :)

  9. Love the scenes playing on the dress that’s new to me!

  10. That looks like so much fun! When I lived in Myrtle Beach, the Carolina Opry was really popular here among both tourists and locals. It looks as though it’s really similar to the Smoky Mountain Opry.

  11. Wow, looks like you all got to see a great show! I have never really been anywhere like this, but hope to someday when the babies get older.

    How fun that you got to meet some of the performers! I love going to places like this. There is vacation fun for everyone. All those performances, and the talent is amazing.

  25. We went to this yearss ago and had a really nice time. It was well done and super fun!

  26. I am not a fan of country music myself. So, I probably wouldn’t really appreciate it. It is very popular though.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Well, there really was only a little country music as I put in my article. If you like pop or Broadway, they really have you covered, too. :)

  27. This looks like lots of fun! I’ve never been to an Opry.

  28. Allie Clark says:

    This looks great! Having lived in Tennessee for 13 years, I have still not visited the Smoky Mountains. Would love to someday!

  29. we have that here in mo and then it call the branson bell and it great show

  30. Lions and tigers and giraffes, oh, my. Lots of different acts. Would be fun to see.
