Sammy Shelor’s Corn Acoustics

corn acoustics corn mazeLast year around this time, we told you about Lonesome River Band banjo picker Sammy Shelor’s side business when fall rolls around. He and his wife Sue plant a field of corn each spring, not to bring to market, but as the base for their annual Corn Acoustics corn maze.

Last year’s maze was cut in the shape of the Crooked Road logo, a southwest Virginia tourism and music project with which Sammy has been involved. This year’s maze isn’t cut into so intricate a design – though it does honor the 25th Anniversary of Lonesome River Band – but Sammy says the maze is a bit more challenging to navigate.

“We’ve got some tricky trails cut. I was mowing in there the other day and got lost myself!”

The Grand Opening of Corn Acoustics is over this coming Labor Day Weekend (9/1-3), and will include bluegrass entertainment each day at no additional charge.
