Bristol Music History

The Birthplace of Country Music Then & Now


The northern Tennessee town of Bristol has had an incredible influence on country and folk music. Ignited by the Bristol Sessions of 1927, Bristol’s impact on the southern sound was rewarded by U.S. Congress in 1998 with the title, “Birthplace of Country Music.”

Former stomping grounds of such Appalachian icons as Jimmy Rodgers and the Carter Family – the most famous of which is wife of Johnny Cash, June Carter – Bristol encourages visitors to have a look around. Get a picture with the Grand Guitar along West State Street, or attend the annual Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion.

Happening each September in downtown Bristol, the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion is a three-day festival allowing Tennessee attendees to pay tribute to their country roots. The festival hosts over 50 bands each year, taking up four Bristol blocks.

Fill your stomach with southern fare, and ears with classic country, and rest up at the Best Western hotel in Johnson City – just a 25-minute drive from Bristol. You'll feel great knowing you've spent time in the "Birthplace of Country Music" – Bristol, Tennessee.
