In 1990, Stanley Jackson and Joe Greenlee started having wild cat fishing tournaments on Saturday nights. Stanley named it Mountain Music Kids Invitational Bass Fishing Tournament. The name Mountain Music was named by Stanley when he threw a buzz bait lure. He said the sound of it skimming over the water sounded like Mountain Music.
