Birthplace of Country Music

The nonprofit Birthplace of Country Music is dedicated to providing engaging content and learning materials about the country music legacy of the Bristol region. Since it was last featured in the 01-21-2011 issue of the Scout Report, the site has added a "Museum from Home" section with a variety of virtual resources. Country music has a number of historical "hearth" areas, but perhaps none is better known than the Bristol area around eastern Tennessee and southwest Virginia. The Birthplace of Country Music is dedicated to educating the public about this regional heritage with exhibits, learning activities, performances, and cultural events that celebrate the rich musical tradition. On the homepage, visitors can navigate to the "Museum" dropdown menu and click "Museum from Home" for video content, student activity sheets, and links to live virtual events and performances. Alternatively, visitors can click the "Radio" dropdown menu and select "Listen Live" to stream Radio Bristol's programming on American roots music.
