Music to flow across Tennessee

Tennessee travelers find music continuously flows through every nook in the state from world-famous events like the Grand Ole Opry's 90th Birthday Bash in Nashville, Boomsday in Knoxville, and Elvis Week in Memphis to small towns keeping music roots preserved like at the Rockabilly Fest in Jackson, Blue Plum Art & Music Festival in Johnson City, and Uncle Dave Macon Days Old-Time Music Festival in Murfreesboro. Holiday family memories are made with modern and traditional events like Bristol's Speedway in Lights, Christmas at Graceland in Memphis, and Dickens of a Christmas in Franklin. From summer through the year's end, experiences like these can only be Made in Tennessee.
