The Mountain City Fiddlers' Convention was originally held in the town of Mountain City, in May 1925. This was the first big event of its kind with the biggest names in early country music coming from far and wide to compete for over $50 in prize money. The convention was attended by many acclaimed Appalachian musicians who are considered pioneers of bluegrass and country music, such as G. B. Grayson, Charlie Bowman, and Al Hopkins. In 2023, The Kody Norris Show assumed the role as the producer for the perennial event. The 2023, the Mountain City Fiddlers Convention will return to where it all began at the former Johnson County High School now home to the Heritage Hall Theatre in Mountain City.
