The Sounds of Summer was originally born from a collection of local musicians who regularly gathered to pick and jam together in downtown Bristol in front of the famed country music mural. Recently, a number of these music legends sat down with BTN-TV to tell the story of how this tradition began. This short documentary, titled “Sounds of Summer: A Bristol Music Tradition,” may be viewed below.
