Tennessee

Our journey turns takes a step north. While Tennessee is known as the Volunteer State, it has a rich heritage in music also.

Nashville, the state capitol also has a reputation as the capitol of Country Music. But don’t forget Memphis, center piece of the Blues and significant in the history of Rock ‘n Roll.

My first tourist visits (I’ll ignore a quick drive through years before) occurred in the 1990’s when friends lived there. Historical exhibits and lip-smacking BBQ made for a memorable weekend.

By 2001, the desire to visit The Hermitage outside of Nashville drew me to travel there. If you enjoy US history I recommend you add this to your list of places to go and things to see. The house is good, the visitor center is interesting, and the grounds are the best of all. In fact, this photo of an interesting rail fence was taken there.
