Forty years ago, when business ownership was largely a man's world, Betty Comer started Gibson's Music. Fueled by her dreams, and undaunted by the many challenges facing her, Betty opened the first location of Gibson's Music at 311 South Main Street. The small store stocked pianos, sheet music and books. Betty, who taught piano lessons part-time for many years, increased her teaching volume to 50 students a week at $2.00 per lesson.

With an eye for the future, Betty relocated Gibsonís Music to it's present location of 112 South Main Street in 1982, and expanded her showroom in 1996. Gibson's Music is now the authorized dealer for some of the finest instrument lines such as Martin, Taylor, and Gibson Guitars; Baldwin and Kawai Pianos; Hammond Organs; Peavey Sound Equipment, and Yamaha Keyboards. Gibson's boasts a talented staff offering piano, guitar and voice lessons.

Betty has achieved a level of success throughout the years of which all the business community of Corbin can be proud. She also deserves appreciation from business women everywhere as one of the pioneers paving the way for women to become an economic force in their communities. Our congratulations to Betty and her staff for their continuing success serving not only our community, but customers throughout the tri-state region.
