Music

Kentucky is the birthplace of bluegrass music and of dozens of music stars from many genres, especially country music. You can ride along U.S. 23 in eastern Kentucky, known as the Country Music Highway, and find the birthplaces of stars like The Judds, Loretta Lynn, Dwight Yoakam, Ricky Skaggs and Billy Ray Cyrus. In Paintsville you’ll find the Country Music Highway Museum, in Renfro Valley the Country Music Hall of Fame, in Owensboro the International Bluegrass Music Museum and in nearby Rosine, the birthplace of the father of blueqrass, Bill Monroe. Don’t be surprised if you also stumble upon a Kentucky bluegrass festival or one of many other Kentucky music festivals. When you leave you’ll want to listen to bluegrass music (and you might be humming a happy tune).

 Get the ultimate Kentucky music experience. Enjoy a Kentucky bluegrass festival or visit the Country Music Highway Museum. Find the best of Kentucky’s music attractions below and start planning your trip today!
