MORGANTOWN, W.VA. (AP) - A country music and variety show that’s entertained tens of thousands of West Virginia tourists for the past four years is going national.

In January, the cable network RFD TV will begin airing weekly 30-minute shows from the American Mountain Theater in Elkins. Organizers made the announcement Monday in Wheeling.

RFD bills itself as “Rural America’s Most Important Network.” It broadcasts similar shows already, including the Marty Stuart Show, Crook and Chase, and Presleys’ Country Jubilee.

AMT President Kenny Sexton says the goal was always to go national.

A top stop for buses, AMT’s show in the historic rail yard has drawn visitors from 43 states and 12 countries.

Sexton expects nearly 37,000 visitors this year.
