Often, when you people talk about the best places to hear live music in the United States, they recommend New Orleans and Nashville. And those places are home to some of the best musicians in the country. However, if you want to dive even deeper into the history of American music, head to The Crooked Road in Virginia.
This 330 mile stretch of driving trail aims to preserve and continue on the legacy of bluegrass music in Virginia. It passes through four cities, 50 towns, and 69 different music venues, and offers opportunities not just to see live music but to explore museums and outdoor recreation. There are signs along the way as well, to help drivers stay on the right path.
