Rest Stop Tours is the creation of

Monte Byrd and Pat Kelley


Best friends and musical collaborators since childhood, Pat and Monte made their first cross-country trip together while still teenagers. Since then they have traveled thousands of miles on our beautiful and interesting American highways, playing and promoting music at rest stops, on open roads, and in various places along the way. Road travel affords a variety of opportunities to meet fascinating people and discover out of the ordinary places. Rest Stop Tours encourages everyone to get out on the open roads and explore all the amazing places that are waiting to be seen. Click on the videos link at the top of this page to watch some fun travel and music videos from the open roads of America.
