This country is rooted in country music. And the birthplace of country music is in Bristol. Like the pioneers of country music, Bristol is the place for timeless dreamers, the seekers, the artists, the poets, the experience enthusiasts, those who have a passion for life, for music, for authenticity, for fun….Bristol is The Place to Play!
Play for musicians. Play for music lovers. Play for the shopping aficionados. Play for motorcycle riders. Play for hikers. Play for racing devotees. Play for history buffs.
In 1927 musician Ralph Peer made a trip to Bristol that would change his life and those of musicians of that era and beyond. It was at this time that several "founders" of country music we were discovered - the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, the Stoneman family and others - country music was born!
