"There's a place I long to be,
and it's home sweet home to me,
that's where I want to stay,
here in Staunton, VA."
(The Statler Brothers' song, Staunton, VA, from the album Do You Love Me Tonight)
"The Most Awarded Act in the History of Country Music", the Statler Brothers, grew up in (and eventually retired to) Staunton, Virginia. Long-time members of Johnny Cash's troupe of performers, hosts of their own hit TV show, and creators of over 40 records and many popular songs, the Statler Brothers have quite the storied career.
We reached out to the Statlers to ask them about a few of their favorite spots around Staunton and they kindly replied with a list of a few of their old haunts!
