- Location: WKBC Hometown Opry at the Main Street Music and Loan
A sign on the outside of a windowless one-story building in North Wilkesboro proclaims it to be the home of the WKBC Hometown Opry. This building houses the Main Street Music and Loan Company, a pawnshop that's also a lively Wilkes County musical institution.
Main Street Music and Loan isn't a large place—there's room for fewer than one hundred folks—but when you watch the Hometown Opry on a local TV station, you can see it draws a very respectable audience. After the show, which happens the second Friday of each month at 7 am, there are lots of places in town to grab some breakfast and a cup of coffee.
