JC Marker for Music
Johnson City placed a new historical marker in the downtown area to celebrate its place in the history of music. The marker was placed on the corner of East Main and Colonial Street. It starts the beginning of a month long celebration of the Johnson City sessions, recorded over a four day period eighty-five years ago. This followed the 1927 Bristol Sessions, which is credited with the birth of country music. Frank Walker of Colombia records held the auditions and made the recordings in the building that now houses WJHL television. Some of these recordings sold more than 75-thousand copies…a huge hit in those days. The celebration will culminate October 18-20 during what is dubbed Johnson City Sessions weekend. (CC)
