The Cumberland Mountain Music Show is a live family-friendly show held monthly in the Cumberland Gap Convention Center located near the spot where Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia come together. The show features gospel, bluegrass and countrymusic along with down-home comedy.
CMMS keeps music and culture of the region alive in our own backyard. Steve Gulley leads the monthly show whose cast of performers is filled with many entertainers, who while native to the tri-state mountain region, are known both nationally and internationally for their musical talents. The cast includes Vic Graves, Debbie Gulley, Don Gulley, Scott Powers, Bryan Turner, Stuart Wyrick, Courtney Arnold and Jake Vanover. Special guest artists from all across the country are regularly featured as well. And let’s not forget Linda Gulley’s fine concession table full of good things for your sweet tooth, including her famous fried pies.
Lincoln Memorial University is happy to collaborate with Steve Gulley and the Cumberland Gap Mountain Music Show cast to present the show in an intimate setting where you can get to know these talented and well-known performers and see them work their magic up close. We hope you'll come and join in this celebration of our mountain musical heritage in a truly beautiful setting.

About Steve Gulley:
Steve Gulley had already won esteem for his lofty tenor voice and emotional delivery as an entertainer at Kentucky’s historic Renfro Valley well before he joined Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, which brought him to a wider but no less appreciative audience. Steve was also a founding member of Mountain Heart where he recorded five highly acclaimed, award-winning projects while serving as the band’s lead vocalist followed by a five-year stint as a founding member and front man of the popular group, Grasstowne. These days he is considered a stalwart of the very top echelon of lead and tenor singers in the bluegrass business as well as being a gifted songwriter and guitarist. He has been tapped as a harmony and featured vocalist on projects such as the widely praised Keith Whitley album, ”Sad Songs And Waltzes” and many other projects featuring Ronnie Bowman, Dan Tyminski, Tim Stafford, Dwight McCall, Dale Ann Bradley, Jeff Parker and country singer Ken Mellons just to name a few. As a songwriter, he has been fortunate enough to have his songs recorded by many top groups including Blue Highway, Kenny & Amanda Smith, and Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. In fact, the song, "Through the Window Of A Train," which Steve co-wrote with Tim Stafford, was voted IBMA Song Of The Year for 2008. Steve has also earned multiple Male Vocalist of the Year nominations at SPBGMA.
