Virginia is for Lovers

The Crooked Road

Virginia's Heritage Music Trail

The Crooked Road winds through almost 300 miles of scenic terrain in southwest Virginia, including 19 counties, four cities, and 54 towns.

The sounds of country music beat strong and pure in Virginia, especially in the Blue Ridge Highlands and Heart of Appalachia regions, connected by The Crooked Road — Virginia's Heritage Music Trail. Day and night, the plaintive strains of the mountain ballads and toe-tapping, old-time dance music echo across this region's sharp ridges and deep valleys.

Look for the sign along the Trail as you explore the musical soul of Virginia's country connections and experience a unique and unforgettable experience!
