Where To Catch Live Music

Our music roots run deep in the Appalachian Mountains of Northeast Tennessee.  Home to the Birthplace of Country Music, this is where it all began back in the 1927. Our rich musical heritage lives on today and continues to influence music around the world. So, whether you are looking for country, bluegrass, blues, Americana, jazz, folk, pop or rock, you won’t have to go far to catch a live show in Northeast Tennessee.
