The Ole Smoky Moonshine Barn at the Island in Pigeon Forge offers free moonshine tastings and a great lineup of bluegrass artists. If you're looking for an authentic Smoky Mountain experience, it's hard to beat sipping moonshine and relaxing to traditional mountain music.

Not far from The Ole Smoky Moonshine Barn, you'll find great live music at Margaritaville, a new Pigeon Forge restaurant.
