The sounds of music and entertainment are echoing from downtown Bristol this weekend as the ever-popular Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion festival welcomes the likes of Wynonna & The Big Noise, Patty Griffin and Matt Maeson to the Appalachian Highlands region. As music enthusiasts create their own schedules around their favorite featured artists this weekend, Bristol Motor Speedway (BMS) is encouraging motorsports fans and festivalgoers to make plans to return next year for the ultimate 10-day fan experience.

Announced earlier this year, the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion and the BMS September race weekend will open and close an exciting week-and-a-half for fans, Sept. 10-19. BMS and the Birthplace of Country Music (BCM) have joined forces for the ultimate offer: the Rhythm & Racing Super Ticket, which will give music and race fans the opportunity to experience 10 days of music, racing and entertainment. Add in the Race Week Parties in Kingsport, Johnson City and Bristol (Food City Family Race Night) and there will literally not be a single day without fun for everyone.

"As visitors flock to downtown Bristol for this weekend's Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, it reminds us of the excitement coming next year when both of our major events are held on back-to-back weekends," said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager at Bristol Motor Speedway. "The Rhythm & Racing Super Ticket will give guests the chance to see the spectacle that is our region's largest music festival while also witnessing all three NASCAR National Series races under the lights in the Playoffs for the first time at BMS. There is nowhere else where you can experience a more-packed 10-day NASCAR and concert experience than Bristol, Sept. 10-19, 2020."

The Super Ticket includes a weekend wristband to the Festival (Sept. 10-13) and a NASCAR ticket to all playoff races at Bristol Motor Speedway (Sept. 17-19), including the headlining Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race. The cost of the ticket package begins at $150 per ticket and is available as an add-on option for BMS season ticket holders.

The Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion opened yesterday and continues through tomorrow, Sept. 22. Wynonna & The Big Noise will hit the stage tonight while The Black Lillies will close the festival on Sunday. To purchase one-day tickets to the final two days of the 2019 Rhythm & Roots Reunion, visit
