Country music artists are known for having an enduring bond with the places they call home. Much of the soul they pour into their music springs from the experiences they had in their humble beginnings. Artists often find themselves drawn back to their roots, seeking to reconnect with their past and to recapture these fond memories. One such artist is Rebecca Lynn Howard, a talented, Grammy award winning country singer-songwriter who is set to return to the region she calls home for a remarkable event in Pikeville, Kentucky – The Mountain Grrl Experience. She will be performing at this event on June 16, along with many other performers.
