Smoke On The MountainLebanon, TN -- The Cumberland County Playhouse in Crossville, Tennessee is thought to hold the record, 20 years, for the longest continuous run of Smoke on the Mountain. Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® became a sponsor of the Playhouse 30 years ago, so when Smoke on the Mountain was first performed there in 1993, the company became the sponsor of the play no one knew would remain a popular favorite with theater-goers for 20 years. This season, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store will sponsor the play’s 22 performances, including the 20th Anniversary Special performance on June 29.

“Twenty years is a remarkable milestone and we are thrilled to help bring this special show to audiences of all ages,” said Cracker Barrel Vice President of Marketing Brad Wahl. “In an age where ‘interactive’ experiences are all the rage, this play has not only withstood the test of time, but also has become an interactive standout because the audience becomes the ‘congregation.’”
