Opry Mills is a large outlet shopping centre in Nashville, Tennessee, with over 200 stores, value retail, and a wide range of dining and entertainment options. Besides its enormous size, the mall is also popular for its location between I-40 and I-65 on Briley Parkway, placing it next to city centre Nashville and Nashville International Airport.

Previously Opryland Themepark, the site was converted into a mall due to the partnership of Gaylord Entertainment with the Mills Corporation in 1997. In 2007, Opry Mills was purchased by Simon Property Group after funding issues, and they rebuilt the mall to an even grander state after flooding in 2010.
