It’s a wrap on the 2023 Country Music Highway Tribute Show

Shaping Our Appalachian Region joined tourism organizations from up and down the Country Music Highway for a three-part summer concert series.

Our vision is simple. To create an event that pays homage to the stars of the Highway with the up-and-coming talent working to get to Nashville and beyond. After all, there’s not an area on the planet that has produced more stars per square mile than the Country Music Highway.

Aside from the music, we advocate funding to reinvest back into music and art education along the Country Music Highway.

Let’s make it official
