It's a busy July here at Mountain Stage, and we have some exciting news to share with our loyal listeners.
Thanks to our new partnership with National Public Radio, Mountain Stage is being featured onNPRMusic.org.
Click here to listen to our first installment featuring country music superstar Dierks Bentley in live performance. Dierks is heard here recorded during our trip to Bristol TN/VA as part of 80th Anniversary of the 1927 Bristol recording sessions which first captured Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family. Widely reffered to as the "Big Bang" of Country Music, those sessions give Bristol it's distinction as the Birthplace of Country Music. Find out more about the BCMA at their web-site.
If you hadn't noticed, we'll be returning to Bristol this August for a special show featuring rising country star Eric Church and a member of country music's first family, Carlene Carter, just a few blocks from where her ancestors cut those landmark tracks over 80 years ago. Plan a trip to Bristol for August 17 and get your tickets here, or by calling 1-423-274-8920.
Thanks for listening!
