The Cumberland Mountain Music Show is a live family-friendly show held monthly in the Cumberland Gap Convention Center located near the spot where Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia come together. The show features gospel, bluegrass and countrymusic along with down-home comedy.

CMMS keeps music and culture of the region alive in our own backyard. Steve Gulley leads the monthly show whose cast of performers is filled with many entertainers, who while native to the tri-state mountain region, are known both nationally and internationally for their musical talents. The cast includes Vic Graves, Debbie Gulley, Don Gulley, Scott Powers, Bryan Turner, Stuart Wyrick, Courtney Arnold and Jake Vanover.  Special guest artists from all across the country are regularly featured as well. And let’s not forget Linda Gulley’s fine concession table full of good things for your sweet tooth, including her famous fried pies. 

Lincoln Memorial University is happy to collaborate with Steve Gulley and the Cumberland Gap Mountain Music Show cast to present the show in an intimate setting where you can get to know these talented and well-known performers and see them work their magic up close.  We hope you'll come and join in this celebration of our mountain musical heritage in a truly beautiful setting.
