Carroll County on The Crooked Road

The Crooked Road, Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail, winds through the mountains of Southwest Virginia. Here, the Bluegrass, Old Time, and Traditional Country music is as beautiful and rugged as the landscape itself. Our mission:  Supporting economic development by promoting Heritage Tourism and Blue Ridge and Appalachian culture.

Visit to explore the trail through an interactive map, purchase a unique selection of music, books, and apparel, and plan a trip to visit various venues. Discover authentic mountain music where it was born at eight major venues: Ralph Stanley Museum, Country Cabin II, Carter Family Fold, Birthplace of Country Music Alliance, Rex Theater & Old Fiddler’s Convention, Blue Ridge Music Center, Floyd Country Store & County Sales, and Blue Ridge Institute & Museum of Ferrum College.
