Historia de la música en cada esquina

Cuando se trata de música, Tennessee es famosa por esos ritmos que recomponen el alma: blues, bluegrass, country, rock and roll y todo lo que está entre ellos. En Memphis, rinde homenaje al rey en la mansión de Elvis Presley en Graceland o escabúllete en un bar de blues en Beale Street. Escucha música en vivo en Ryman Auditorium en Nashville y un poco de country en Grand Ole Opry. Visita Bristol, la cuna de la música country, donde la familia Carter y Jimmie Rodgers fundaron su fama. En Brownsville, visita una escuela que fue transformada en museo para hacer homenaje a Tina Turner, nacida en Tennessee.
