August 28-30, 2018

Abingdon, VA

 

A celebration of Country Music History, this Spectacular Event is set in the beautiful mountains of Southwest Virginia where country music was born. Follow us onto "The Crooked Road" Heritage Trail, a 300 mile long path that crosses the frontier of the recording industry, with the memory of Legends, producing a sensational tour for Country Music Lovers.

Day 1

On arrival in Abingdon, VA we will find that an exciting night of musical history awaits us. Following hotel check-in you join other groups at a local events center for a dinner show that begins with Virginia Country Cooking and ends with a Tribute to a pair of Country Music Legends.
This evening's concert features some of the greatest Country Songs ever recorded. Our tribute to Loretta Lynn, will feature some of her greatest hits such as "Coal Miners Daughter", "Don't Come Home a Drinkin'", "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man", "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl", "Silver Threads and Golden Needles", and many more. You will also enjoy the music of her friend the immortal Patsy Cline who had such hits as "Honky Tonk Angel", "Walking After Midnight", "Crazy", "Sweet Dreams", and "I Fall to Pieces".

Day 2

Today begins at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum. A Smithsonian affiliate it is dedicated to the telling of one story only, an event that Johnny Cash called The Big Bang of Country Music.
In 1927 a talent scout for the Victor Talking Machine Company had four men carry a portable recording device into a Bristol hat factory and invited local musicians to record the music of the Appalachians. Through this museum, because of "The Bristol Sessions" the region's rich music legacy sings loud and proud today. The legendary Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers, were among the first artists ever recorded.
After the museum we have free time in downtown Bristol where State Street separates Virginia from Tennessee. You will find quaint shops, antiques, boutiques, fine art and more. You can take a selfie with the famous Bristol sign, stand in Two States at once, and buy yourself a milkshake at the Burger Bar (rumored to be where Hank Williams ate his last meal).
Then the afternoon highlight is the Bristol Motor Speedway where we do a lap on the high-banked track known as "The World's Fastest Half-Mile!" You'll also see Pit Road and the Bristol Dragway known as "Thunder Valley."
The musical feature of this visit is a concert by a group that performs the music of The Statler Brothers, who also hailed from the State of Virginia. We will hear their tribute song to Johnny Cash, (who discovered them) "We Got Paid by Cash" and many other originals such as "Flowers on the Wall" and "My Only Love."
Dinner is a catered meal of country favorites served under a tent in the VIP Hospitality Area where you watched the show.
Following that our group motors to the remote community of Hiltons, VA for a special show at the Carter Fold. This is hallowed ground, the original Carter Family lived here. For tonight we have rented the music center known as The Fold which exists as a tribute to A.P. Carter, Sara and Maybelle.
Every Saturday night The Fold hosts an evening of old-time mountain music. However, tonight's concert is a tribute to Maybelle's daughter June, and her husband Johnny Cash. Did you know that June Carter wrote "Ring of Fire" in the early 60's, several years before she married Johnny. You'll hear songs like "Jackson" and "Long Legged Guitar Pickin Man" as our tribute artists recreate their love and music at the ancestral home.
Note: The Carter Fold is a rustic and eclectic theater with festival seating.
