Bristol, Tenn./Va. (January 27, 2022) - Rosanne Cash and JJ Grey & Mofro are two of the top headliners for the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival, Sept. 9-11, 2022, in Historic Downtown Bristol, Tennessee-Virginia. The announcement of Grey and Cash are part of the first round of artists announced today by festival organizers.
"We are thrilled that JJ Grey & Mofro and Rosanne Cash are among our headliners this year," said Leah Ross, executive director of advancement for the Birthplace of Country Music, the parent nonprofit of the festival, theBirthplace of Country Music Museum, and WBCM Radio Bristol. "Rosanne's participation is especially significant as we recognize the 95th anniversary of the 1927 Bristol Sessions, which her father Johnny Cash named 'the single most important event in the history of country music.'"
Though the festival celebrates the impact of those recordings every year, this year's lineup reflects just how far-reaching and influential the 1927 Bristol Sessions continue to be across a wide range of music genres.
