The Pea Pickin’ Hearts were very flattered to have been invited to participate and are contemplating entering a song into the Del Rio Song Contest.  How ’bout you?

Del Rio, TN is a historic Southern Appalachian community spread along the French Broad River and into the surrounding mountains, ruled by native woodlands, long ridges and deep, winding hollows.

The old homesteads in Del Rio may be vanishing, but the traditional ways of life remain. The virtuous, the sinful, the independent and all the shades of humankind share a sense of belonging in this special location.
