Few People Know This Charming Small Town In Kentucky Is The Home To The Country Music Highway Museum On U.S. 23
Kentucky’s played a proud role in American music history, with legendary icons like Loretta Lynn and Rosemary Clooney hailing from the Bluegrass State. And there’s an entire scenic route in Kentucky that celebrates this history. Running north-south through seven counties in eastern Kentucky, U.S. 23 is more widely known as Country Music Highway. The highway’s 144 mile stretch through Kentucky makes a great weekend trip to enjoy beautiful scenery, lively music, and friendly people eager to share the character and history of the area; and the eponymous museum in Paintsville is a must-visit stop along this acclaimed route.
