Bristol is designated by U.S. Congress as the birthplace of country music and considered hollowed ground by artists all over the world.

"Our lineup is a reflection of the vast influence those recordings have made on the music of today and the rich music culture of Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee", said Leah Ross, executive director of advancement for Birthplace of Country Music (BCM), the parent nonprofit of the festival, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, and WBCM Radio Bristol.
