The Birthplace of Country Music Museum, Bristol, VA
Fly to KTRI.  Rental cars available at the terminal or through the FBO.  It is a short 25-30 minute drive to Bristol. The museum is very well done and plan on staying 2 - 3 hours or more if you are a country music history buff.
 
The Birthplace of Country Music Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, tells the story of the 1927 Bristol Sessions recordings, explores how evolving sound technology shaped their success, and highlights how this rich musical heritage lives on in today’s music. Through text and artifacts, multiple theater experiences, and interactive displays – along with a variety of educational programs, music performances, and community events – the exciting story of these recording sessions and their far-reaching influence comes alive. Rotating exhibitions from guest curators and other institutions, including the Smithsonian, are featured throughout the year in the Special Exhibits Gallery. The museum also houses a research collection including an extensive digital archive.
