The Crooked Road: America’s country music birthplace

There’s something about Appalachian culture that gets in your bones. Many of the the local jamborees and shindigs (where bluegrass and old-time musicians get together and jam) have been running continuously for decades. And there is a distinct mix of generations, oftentimes with grandparents, children, and grandchildren all singing, dancing, or performing together on stage.

From clogging to picking, this is a staple of American culture; it gave birth to country music, and even rock n’ roll has its roots here. If you’re looking for a different kind of road trip, the Crooked Road in Virginia takes you through 330+ miles of roads, dozens of small towns, and several key cities that all play a major part in this heritage. Grab your partner, take the brood, and let’s get down.
