Biltmore Estate’s Summer Concert Series, held annually on the South Terrace of the massive chateau, brings some of the finest musical talent in the country to one of the most beautiful settings in the country. The Estate has released the line-up for this summer’s concerts, and now is the time to make plans to attend … these concerts have been known to sell out fast. And why not – those who are lucky enough to secure tickets to one of these concerts have the great luxury of spending some leisurely time outdoors at this magnificent estate, watch the sunset over the mountains, and listen to a great concert by one of their favorite artists. Biltmore Estate, accustomed to moving much larger numbers of people from the parking lots to the House, get concert-goers to their destination with complete ease.
"An Evening with Loretta Lynn and Doc Watson" was held on Friday, August 19. The sweet sounds of country music filled the air for a memorable night featuring two of country music’s most enduring legends.
