Americana Experience In Franklin TN

The lineup for the Americana Experience 10-day music festival was released this morning and includes more than 50 artists in several venues around Franklin and Leiper’s Fork in May.

The celebration of Americana includes concerts and movie screenings, and culminates with the Cross County Lines festival May 31, organized by the Americana Music Association. The association moved its headquarters to The Factory at Franklin last year.

Jed Hilley, executive director of the Americana Music Association, is scheduled to speak to members of Williamson Inc., the county chamber of commerce, today to discuss the growing impact of Americana music in the county.
