There are fewer things more irritating to a Northeast Tennessean or Southwest Virginian than hearing the word “Appalachian” mispronounced. It is a matter of fact that folks from this Appalachian region do not refer to their home as app-uh-LAYSHA.
We here at the Birthplace of Country Music are on a mission to make it right. Will you help us spread the word? Purchase the perfect pronunciation tee from our store, wear it out and proud, take a selfie and tag @BCMBristol on Twitter. We’ll share it and soon balance will be restored!
The app-uh-latch-uh tee is just one of the many ultra cool things you’ll find in The Museum Store.
