    - In today's world of stress and confusion, a trip to Elizabethton on Saturday evening is a time capsule experience. Walking down Elk Avenue during a cruise-in allows all ages the opportunity to see America in better days, and car buffs can see those cars that most people only dreamed about in past years. At a Carter County Car Club Cruise-in, people actually talk to one another instead of text. A world class double-chocolate milk shake can still be purchased at the Bonnie Kate. For those of us who grew up here, East Tennessee becomes familiar again. Time slows down. That innocence that was characteristic of your youth will return as you walk down Elk Avenue as you gaze upon those special cars from the past. Even better, you can make this walk while holding the hand of that special person you have known ever since those happier times. A hand that perhaps came from across the parking lot at the Dairy Queen.

    - Saturday, June 25th, 2016, at 7:30 p.m., the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons,
    Virginia, will present a concert of old time music by the Whitetop Mountain Band.
    Admission to the concert is $10 for adults, $1 for children 6 to 11, under age 6 free.
    Whitetop Mountain Band is a family-based
    band from the highest mountains
    of Virginia. Whitetop is an area rich in old time
    music tradition, and this band has deep roots in
    mountain music. The band’s members have
    worked tirelessly to preserve the region’s style of
    old time fiddling and banjo picking and are
    legendary musicians and teachers of the style.
    Their shows are high energy and unlike any other
    show you have ever seen. There’s everything
    from fiddle and banjo instrumentals to powerful
    solos and harmony vocals on blues, classic
    country, honky tonk, traditional bluegrass numbers, old timey ballads, originals, four-part
    mountain gospel songs – and some flat foot dancing. Well-known for their charisma on
    stage and their ability to engage audiences of all ages, this group has been performing at
    the Carter Fold since shows first began at the A.P. Carter Grocery in the 1970s.
