I’m still planning my itinerary for Tennessee. I’ll be in Nashville, Clarksdale, Memphis and at least one other town the week of April 17th. Please leave any comments or suggestions below – it’s my first time in the state and I know there’s a lot more to its musical history than the King.

    Be sure to visit Knoxville on the other side of the state while you're at it. The city hosts the nation's largest ska festival.

    Nashville is a really great place to visit, and if no one else has already mentioned it, go check out Printers Alley, and to eat the Knoshville deli up by Vandy is great and Jacks BBQ downtown. P.S. You need to check out Knoxville sometime. Its a really great city with alot of surprises, like its the third or fourth largest in the television/ cable production industry, and is a mecca for great bands as well. Plus much much more. Oh yeah, your site is the absolute greatest music venue anywhere. Thanks for being there.

    Jackson sits between Memphis and Nashville along I-40. We are home to the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, but there's some really awesome local bands as well. The flavor here is mostly southern melodic punk(that's the best I can describe it)...Check out the praise and worship team at Family Worship Center for a new take on contemporary Christian music.

    I am resident of Knoxville and grew up in Minneapolis. I want to suggest you add a band from Knoxville to your project. "Four Leaf Peat" is an excellent celtic band that has been playing in and around Knoxville for years. Thanks John Kraemer
