OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - A Tennessee-based company that provides online services for fans of bluegrass music is establishing a presence in western Kentucky.
Terry Herd, cofounder of Nashville-based Bluegrass Today, told the Messenger-Inquirer that the decision indicates how significant Owensboro, Ky., is in the bluegrass music industry.
The city is home to the International Bluegrass Museum and hosts the annual ROMP: Bluegrass Roots and Branches Festival, which was named the "event of the year" in 2012 by the International Bluegrass Music Association.
Bluegrass Today, which launched about two years ago, includes news, airplay charts, forums and directories for fans.
The company said Sean Dysinger will head up its presence in Owensboro.
