COSBY-Car tags from ten states were seen Sunday afternoon at the third annual Music of the Mountains at Smoky Mountain Visitors Center on Cosby.

The event ended a three-day celebration beginning in Townsend on Friday when lovers of Celtic music gathered in Blount County to kick off the yearly series. On Saturday, Sevier County hosted a program at Gatlinburg's Sugarlands Visitors Center featuring traditional Appalachian music.

"Cocke, Sevier, and Blount are the three Tennessee counties included in Great Smoky Mountains National Park," said Cocke County Tourism Director Linda Lewanski, "and we are thrilled to focus on our area's traditional gospel music today."

Music of the Mountains, presented by Cocke County Partnership's Tourism Committee, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Great Smoky Mountains Association, brings together both instrumental and vocal musicians for an afternoon of music.
