New Music Park in Western Kentucky

May 29, 2012

A new music park is on its way to the town of Hartford, Kentucky.  Entrepreneur Susan Matthews says she’s turning a former country club near the William H. Natcher Parkway into Kentucky Music Park. 

Matthews says the venue will offer different genres of music on a monthly basis including bluegrass, rock, country and jazz.  In addition, the 72-acre site has a golf course, a fishing lake, camping sites, and hiking trails. Matthews says, however, the main focus, however, will be music. She says the park will host a bluegrass festival July 4th through the 6th featuring James Monroe, the son of Bill Monroe. When cold weather arrives, the music will move indoors to a 6,000-square-foot clubhouse.  Matthews says the project is her third business, and it’s keeping her busy.
