Region Eastern Kentucky

Mt. Vernon has been home to "Kentucky's Country Music Capital", Renfro Valley, for over 60 years. Twelve shows a week featuring country, gospel, bluegrass and comedy are still performed in the original Old Barn theater, along with headliner concerts and festivals. With a heritage rich in entertainment, Renfro Valley became the perfect location for the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum. This state of the art facility honors performers, songwriters, broadcasters and many other Kentuckians who have made significant contributions to the music industry. For history lovers, there is the BitterSweet Cabin Museum, a collection of authentic log cabins filled with artifacts dating back to the 1700's. Crafts and country cooking. I-75 exit 62, we're easy to find...hard to forget.
