The Birthplace of Bluegrass Music

May 18, 2017 by B&B Association of Kentucky

Kentucky Bluegrass MusicIf there are two things most people associate with Kentucky, it’s horse racing (and Thoroughbred horses in general), and Bluegrass music.  It’s true that Kentucky is the original birthplace of Bluegrass music, and many modern day country music stars still have their beginnings in Kentucky.  In fact, U.S. Highway 23 is known as the “Country Music Highway,” because it’s where you’ll find the birthplaces of stars like The Judds, Loretta Lynn, Dwight Yoakam, Ricky Skaggs and Billy Ray Cyrus, to name a few.  The sweet sounds of banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin define Kentucky Bluegrass Music, and there are a variety of places to listen to it, and festivals celebrating it, across Kentucky.  If you’re looking to dive a little deeper in the historic heart of Bluegrass Kentucky, book a stay at any number of our Kentucky Bed and Breakfasts this summer, and take yourself on a music journey you’ll won’t forget.
