“Discover the Upper Cumberland” premieres January 10th on WCTE

WCTE invites you to discover Upper Cumberland tourism. Through our partnership with Tennessee Tech University's TECH-REDI Initiative, we will explore the rich culture, natural beauty and special events which make our region such a special place to live, work, play and retire.
Cordell Hull and Alvin C. York, two of 20th century America's greatest patriots during peacetime and in war, grew up only a few miles apart. W.E.B. Du Bois taught school here. History buffs can drive the river bluffs and back roads of the Upper Cumberland Civil War Trail. The entire area contains some of the best small heritage museums and veterans halls in the country.
In terms of natural beauty, the region is a veritable paradise, home to ten state parks and three major lakes. Hike to the "Land of Falling Water," kayak down a scenic river and trek into the rugged Big South Fork. The Upper Cumberland is ideal for people who love outdoor fun and adventure.
The region's special events reflect its outstanding musical tradition. The Smithville Fiddlers' Jamboree, Jammin at Hippie Jack's Americana Music Festival, Dailey and Vincent's Homecoming Concert and Bluegrass Underground are only a few stops along the world-class Upper Cumberland Music Trail.
Join host Kelly Swallows as she invites locals and visitors alike to discover the best our home has to offer. Discover the Upper Cumberland premieres at 8 p.m. on January 10th and repeats at 8 p.m. on January 19th. WCTE is Channel 10 on Charter and Channel 22 on Dish and Direct.
