Birthplace of Country Music Museum – Bristol VA

by | Apr 5, 2018

The Birthplace of Country Music Museum located in Bristol TN-VA was simply an amazing stop on our recent RV adventure. Stopping in Bristol for just a few days, I visited the museum after hearing so much that this was simply a jewel of American music history.

Beyond the Appalachian mountains and hills, little was know about this “hill music” prior to 1927. In that year and for what will forever been known as the Bristol Sessions, Ralph Peer, a producer for the Victor Talking Machine Company, recorded local talent for 10 days. A new popular music was born and forever, Country Music would be a part of our culture.

The museum offers both displays and well produced videos about the sessions and how this music has continued to impact artists through today. Interactive venues exist to listen to original recordings to modern versions of these country classics.

A great value and amazing experience you should consider if you are traveling through the Bristol area.
