I moved to Knoxville in May of 2016, so I haven’t been in the area for long.
Having just arrived in Knoxville, I look forward to attending many KCAC events and updating my answer with a favorite!
The whole area is beautiful. I have been a lifelong resident of the Midwest, so I’m really appreciating the mountains, trees and hills. As for my favorite location, it would have to be on a golf course enjoying the outdoors. When I’m not at work, you can always find me out on the course.
The buzz and atmosphere around the building on a big show day is unlike anything else. We are in the business of making lifelong memories, and it’s a privilege to work in the entertainment business and be a part of it.
