Some fun news to share — my first post for the Virginia Tourism blog went up over the weekend.
It’s hard to put into words how honored I am at having the opportunity to write about Virginia’s music-related history, people, and places. I’ve lived in just two cities — Norfolk and Richmond — and I owe so much of my love of music to Virginia artists and venues. That said, in the last few years, I’ve had the opportunity to explore the western part of the state and the crucial role the area has played in genres like country and bluegrass. It’s been eye-opening. Despite living here for 30+ years, it still feels like I’ve only scratched the surface of the music this big, beautiful state has to offer, and I hope you’ll follow along at Virginia’s Travel Blog as I continue exploring.
