BLOUNT COUNTY - Country-duo 'The Young Fables' call Maryville home, and all day Friday they had the chance to show thousands of followers from across the country what the music scene in East Tennessee is like.
"Today is a really big day for us because 'Tennessee' is coming back to our hometown and putting us on their Snapchat story," said Laurel Wright of The Young Fables.
The Tennessee Department of Tourism runs a Snapchat channel and its username is simply "Tennessee." On it is a program called the "Spotlight Series," which features up and coming artists from Tennessee.
"I was just really excited they wanted to come to Maryville, back to our hometown and Knoxville and be here with us and that's really special to me," said Wright.
Dave Jones with the Tennessee Department of Tourism says the series is designed to give music fans and millennials a behind the scenes look.
