Gene Johnson

Gene Johnson, member of Grammy Award winning band, Diamond Rio, is Tennessee Craft Week’s 2016 Honorary Chairperson. Johnson has a wonderful talent in carpentry, along with a passionate hobby of collecting old tools and instruments. He is scheduled to visit TCW events in Chattanooga, Memphis and Nashville during the October celebration. “I was attending college to become a teacher (woodworking of course) when I got a call to play with a professional recording band. Music won out, but my love for woodworking, turning, and furniture has remained a passionate part of my life.” – Gene Johnson


Tennessee First Lady Crissy Haslam

We would like to thank Honorary Chairperson Crissy Haslam for her help with launching Tennessee Craft Week 2015 and her continued support of craft artists in Tennessee.”Tennessee has a rich craft history that has been passed down from one generation to the next. Handmade traditions can be lost if they are not appreciated.” – Crissy Haslam
