Princess Theatre to be Part of the New Tennessee Music Trail
Roane County, TN – The Roane County Visitors Bureau is happy to announce that Harriman’s Princess Theatre has been named one of the first 200 destinations on the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development’s (TDTD) Tennessee Music Pathways program.
“We were so excited to get the news that the Princess Theatre would be one of the first points of interest on the State’s new music trail,” said Sam Jones Ledford, Marketing & Tourism Coordinator for the Roane Alliance. “Because of the theatre’s history and more recently, performances by well-known local musicians, renowned cover bands and internationally-known acts, it was an obvious choice for a music trail - it’s a great start for Roane County’s involvement with this initiative.”
The Tennessee Music Pathway will allow visitors to experience the State’s rich music history. TDTD Commissioner Kevin Triplett was instrumental in getting this trail launched, working with tourism partners across the state to bring Tennessee’s Soundtrack of America to life. The 1st phase of the trail includes 200 locations or points of interests all across the state including statues, murals, attractions, historical markers and even experiences that identify birthplaces, resting places, hometowns and special locations of Tennessee’s musical pioneers and legends.
“We expect signs to be delivered very soon,” added Jones, “to designate the theatre as an official site of the Tennessee Music Pathway, but we expect even more sites in Roane to be announced in the next phase and will work with the state to make that happen.”
The Roane County Visitors Bureau, a partner of the Roane Alliance, continually works to attract travelers seeking unique heritage and the best outdoor recreational experiences. By working closely with the TDTD, the visitor’s bureau ensures that Roane County is highlighted as a tourist destination in any new initiative.
