Renfro Valley, Kentucky
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Renfro Valley is a neighborhood located just off Interstate 75 in Mount Vernon, a city in Rockcastle County, Kentucky, United States. The community of Renfro Valley (which has its own United States Post Office, zip code 40473) includes the Renfro Valley Entertainment Center. Since being founded by local area native John Lair and others in 1939, Renfro Valley Entertainment Center has hosted the Renfro Valley Barn Dance, a traditional country music show which gave now-legendary entertainers such as Red Foley and Homer and Jethro the spotlight early in their careers. The Barn Dance and other programming originating in Renfro Valley was broadcast over the CBS Radio Network until the late 1950s. Today, Renfro Valley is known throughout Kentucky and the rest of the country for its rich history of “Real Country Music by Real Country Folks.” This tradition continues today with outstanding stage shows put on by the current cast of Renfro Valley entertainers. Also, since 1992, Renfro Valley Entertainment Center has hosted Headliner Concerts that feature a mixture of legendary country singers with newer artists, as well as bluegrass, gospel, and comedy acts.
I think that they have some very nice shops, but the bluegrass music is not for me. They have folks like Loretta Lynn and George Jones that come and do shows also. It is a very nice place to visit and lots of friends folks.
