The historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville will get a permanent outdoor stage near the venue, according to a report by Nashville Scene. The stage will be constructed with the help of PNC Bank, which has signed a multi-year sponsorship deal with the Ryman.

According to the report, “the small performance stage will be constructed on the Fourth Avenue side of the Ryman complex, outside Café Lula and near the stairs leading down to Fourth. It is expected to be completed by year’s end and will be called PNC Plaza at Ryman Auditorium.”

“This relationship will elevate experiences at the Ryman, both inside and out, throughout the year,” said Gary Levi, general manager of the Ryman (via Nashville Scene). “We’re excited to have PNC as our official financial sponsor.”

According to the report, the process of creating the stage has been going on since March of 2019. No word yet on when it will be completed.
