Nashville is known worldwide as Music City USA, home of the Grand Ole Opry, major record labels, and countless recording studios and of course, Gibson and EPIPHONE Guitar companies! Saturday, April 26th it was also home to marathon enthusiasts from around the world for the 8th Annual Country Music Marathon. The Epiphone trailer was there at the finish line in the shadow of Titan’s Coliseum throughout the day showing off our wide selection of quality instruments, including the new Elitist line. Folks from every walk of life stopped by to look, touch and play! The tone-rich new PR350SM was a big hit as well as crowd-favorite the one and only Mandobird!

The 2003 Country Music Marathon featured more than 50 live music bands along the course playing all types of music from rock 'n' roll and jazz to swing and pop. The annual event benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
