The Earl Scruggs Center is excited to share this "new" exhibit that was launched right before the shut down. They are now open and as a #countonmenc certified attraction, they are taking great precautions to help you safely enjoy this wonderful exhibit AND the rest of the Center's exhibits.

Must-See Exhibit 👀👀👀

Special Exhibit - Standing Her Ground: Women In Country Music

For as long as country music has existed in its many forms, including bluegrass and folk, women have played important roles. Most of us are familiar with the big-name performers, but women have been influential in all areas of the country music industry. From performing to songwriting, from managing to producing, this exhibit honors and shines a light on the important and groundbreaking contributions of women to this field.

Another great event here - this year the Rhythm & Roots Run will be virtual and you can not only run, walk or stroll, you can also bike or walk your pup! You still receive the t-shirt and medal!

Big Announcement❗️❗️❗️

Virtually Run, Bike, Stroll, Walk or walk your dog and join us for the biggest year yet!

We are pleased that we are able to keep our tradition of our Rhythm & Roots Run moving forward. It will, however, just look a little different this year. This year we will be hosting a VIRTUAL 5k or 10K Run/Walk & 10-mile or 20-mile Bike Ride. What does that mean? It means you will be able to walk, run, or ride your OWN race anytime during the race window, which will be October 31-November 14. You can participate in this race from anywhere, so join athletes from across the country and world for Rhythm and Roots 2020.. Virtual runs are great in the sense that you can do it on a treadmill, in your backyard if you have the room, a nearby trail or your neighborhood. If you are able to participate with some friends while being socially distancing responsible, that's even better.We’ll miss seeing everyone in person this year, but can’t wait to connect with everyone in a new way. Join the Rhythm and Roots Race Facebook Group to connect with other participants, and post photos of your run/ride!

You will receive your awesome race medal and shirt after the race is completed. Thank you for supporting the race this year. We know you will LOVE the medals.

We look forward to seeing you VIRTUALLY!

Thank you to our presenting sponsor Plaster Family Dentistry for their continued support. Thank you for your support of the Earl Scruggs Center– you make a difference!

A friend of mine is opening a grill in Lincolnton, NC. He is one of our finest local chefs hoping for some local support. It is a small start up and one step towards creating a dream he has had for so many years. I'm trying to help him find good staff members to help him along the way. We are also hoping to help support local artists by using our walls as a place to sell and showcase their work. Anyone interested please email your resume or portfolio to [email protected]. Interviews will be held at the end of the month. Until then, he will still happily be whipping up delicious lunches for all you incredible folks in Gaston County. Although his employers are supportive of his decision I still would like to keep his name off this post until we are closer to our opening date. Thank you!
