More from the Clinch Mountains: Mace's Spring

The Clinch Mountains of southwestern Virginia and northeastern Tennessee are home to a long list of well known names in the Old-Time, Country, and Bluegrass fields. I would be remiss if I did not mention the folks that earned the area it's nickname as "the birthplace of country music".

A.P., Sara, and Mother Maybelle, The Carter Family.

The Carter Family Fold, in the little community of Mace's Spring, Virginia, at the foot of Clinch Mountain, still draws thousands of visitors from around the world.
