Hillbilly Degree at Hillbilly Days!

Following the degree work on Friday night the 19th around 9pm.  A bluegrass concert will be put on by Ralph Stanley II. This concert is free and open to the public.

This annual event is not all for show this was the way we lived 30 years ago and I am proud of it. Hillbilly Days has something for all ages. Our old people love it as do our young and others. Come on down and meet some genuine Hillbillies. This is the home of the Hatfield-McCoy feud right here in Pikeville. Our old people still talk of it.

This will be an experience you will never forget.

6th Annual Hillbilly Days  1983

On Saturday morning there is a huge parade with Hillbillies from all over the country with their Hillbilly cars and trucks. It is a sight to behold! To wind things up on Saturday night, there is always a concert at the Appalachian Wireless  Arena. Last years performer was country music icon and proud supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project and Shriners Hospitals for Children, Trace Adkins. Before the show, Mr. Adkins graciously had a Meet and Great with a group of Hillbillies from Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and South Carolina. At that time, two of our Imperial Hillbilly officers, Roger Morgan and Jody Vaughters and our Imperial US Ambassador Matt Porter, presented Mr. Adkins with a crystal plaque thanking him for all he has done for the children of Shriners Hospitals. Later, during the show, Mr. Adkins recognized that group of Hillbillies and thanked all of us for what we do for the kids. If you have not seen his commercials for Shriners Hospitals, go online and watch them, they are amazing.
