The Floyd Country Store has announced the launch of its official online streaming platform, Floyd Country Store TV. 

Since the 1900s, the Floyd Country Store has been a space for traditional Appalachian music and dance. Floyd Country Store TV will feature content from the Floyd Country Store, including concerts, dances, Friday Night Jamborees, music lessons and educational content from the Handmade Music School. Content is organized into seven categories: Live Stream Events, Floyd Country Store Concerts, Friday Night Jamborees, Field Recordings, Honky Tonk Thursdays, Handmade Music School, and Documentaries.

The idea for the platform sprang from the pandemic, during which the Floyd Country Store started streaming its events online to those who could not attend in person or felt safer attending virtually.

“Everyone loved our live streams so much that we decided we needed to find a better way to continue doing it,” owner Dylan Locke said in a statement. “People tuned in from all over the world and we realized this would be a great way to stay connected with all of them.”

“It’s like YouTube or Netflix for the Country Store,” said Handmade Music School board member Joseph DeJarnette in a statement, “or like Tiny Desk Concerts for string band music.”

Floyd Country Store TV is available at It is also accessible as an application on devices including Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV, as well as on iPhone, Android, Mac and PC.

A Floyd Country Store TV subscription costs $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year.
