A crooked road runs through Route 23 from southwest Virginia and over the state line into Kentucky, a region steeped in the music tradition of the Appalachias. On Saturday, August 29, Birthplace of Country Music brings an added roadside attraction for music lovers - the RTE 23 Music Festival - and the admission is free.

Held on the campus of the University of Virginia's College at Wise, RTE 23 Music Festival brings a diverse mix of artists together for a full day of live music that's off the beaten path and features fun activities for the kids. 

The festival begins at 3:00 p.m. with a bouncy house and magic show for the kids; food and craft vendors will also set up.
