Boone, NC – Celebrate Independence Day with us! An Appalachian Summer Festival kicks off its season with an outdoor concert by a country music icon and the Town of Boone’s annual fireworks display on July 3rd!
With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked: “Who’s going to fill their shoes?” The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart. The Country Music Hall of Famer and Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country-music history. He’s played alongside the masters, from Cash to Lester Flatt as he continues to record and release keenly relevant music, with records that honor country’s rich legacy while advancing it into the future.
