Ky. lawmaker pushing to create a bluegrass trail

GRAYSON, Ky. (AP) - A state lawmaker is pushing for the creation of a bluegrass trail in Kentucky.

Democratic state Sen. Robin Webb of Grayson told The Independent that her proposal seeks to promote traditional Kentucky culture and would boost tourism.

Webb says her resolution could be accomplished with little funding - mostly for signs.

If the proposal gets legislative approval, the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet would create and promote the bluegrass trail, which would identify and locate venues, festivals, concerts, museums, schools and historic and noteworthy sites that feature bluegrass music.

Webb said she would like to see it begin in eastern Kentucky before it spreads to the rest of the state.
