Big news in the World of Bluegrass Music this week and I was blessed to be there for all of the excitement. The International Bluegrass Music Museum and Hall of Fame broke ground on the much anticipated $15.4 million facility right next to the Hampton Inn in downtown Owensboro.

The venue will allow for indoor and outdoor concert events bringing bluegrass and country music to the banks of the Ohio River. While housing the largest collection of bluegrass artifacts in the country, there will also be a recording studio, research library, teaching rooms and a rooftop restaurant with beautiful views of downtown Owensboro. What a great way to honor history!
