Crooked Road Heritage Music Trail

Crooked Road Heritage Music Trail

The Crooked Road, Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail, winds through the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia, where bluegrass, old-time, and traditional country music were born—and still thrive.

With a mission to promote Appalachian culture, the heritage trail travels through 19 counties, including Montgomery. The eight major sites along the trail celebrate the authentic mountain music and its major players that the region so dearly loves: the Ralph Stanley Museum, Country Cabin II, Carter Family Fold, Birthplace of Country Music Alliance, Rex Theater & Old Fiddler’s Convention, Blue Ridge Music Center, Floyd Country Store & County Sales, and Blue Ridge Institute & Museum at Ferrum College.  

If pickin’ gets you grinnin’, the Crooked Road is the route for you.
