A big thank you to all who came out to visit the Opry House this past year. We had some great fun and great music. 2015 promises to be great too! More than ever we want you here to enjoy the fine entertainment the Chrystal Opry House at Melody Ranch brings you.
We say it all of the time but it is sincere - bring your friends and neighbors with you so they too can enjoy this fine music. Some of them may not have heard bluegrass music or think they don't like it, but once they experience the quality of music the Opry House brings they will be back for more!

The Melody Ranch Bluegrass Festival (MRBF) was born on May 31, 2007.There had been monthly bluegrass, country, and gospel shows at the building, the Chrystal Opry House, for some time before that date.The monthly bluegrass and gospel shows continue to this day as well as several multi-day festivals throughout the year.
Melody Ranch sits on 18 acres owned by Bill and Annette Hayes, and is located on White Mound road off Hwy 902 between Howe and Tom Bean,Texas. Melody Ranch is named for their daughter Melody.The shows are held in the Chrystal Opry House named for their daughter Chrystal.
The MRBF is an off shoot of the bluegrass festival that had been held in Coleman,Ok, beginning in June of '03 and ran to June of '06. When that festival shut down after the '06 show, Bill said to me,"Let's have one at my place on the same date next year". So he built the camping sites and we were in business.
After the spring festival that first year, we held another festival in October.This festival ran from '07 to '09. In 2010 we moved the fall festival to the last weekend in August and re-named it the "Deep Summer Festival".
We extend a hearty Texas welcome to one and all, so come attend our next event!
