Tennessee

The Volunteer State

No other place can claim to be the capital of American music like Tennessee. From the Beale Street Blues of Memphis, to Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry and Bristol’s historic "Bristol Sessions,” Tennessee’s musical heritage is internationally renowned. From the legendary artistry of Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, B.B. King and Johnny Cash, to modern day staples like Justin Timberlake and Kings of Leon, Tennessee’s music is embedded in the culture of the world. Whether it is country, blues, soul, gospel, jazz, Appalachian, rock, pop or any genre in between, you will find what moves and shakes you in Tennessee. Standing still is just not an option.

Tennessee is home to numerous international attractions including Graceland, Dollywood, RCA Studio B, Jack Daniel’s Distillery, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the National Civil Rights Museum, the Tennessee Aquarium, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Bristol Motor Speedway. World-famous events like Bonnaroo, America’s number one music festival, and worldchampionship barbecue cook-offs, take place in Tennessee each year. With four major cities – Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga – plus quaint, small towns and thousands of acres of great outdoors, Tennessee offers something for everyone.
