Nashville is alive. Feel its pulse when you walk down the sidewalks and you can also hear the music almost anywhere you go. Nashville is where music lives. A place where music hangs its hat and puts its feet up on the furniture. To really experience Nashville’s music history, see a show inside the Ryman and Grand Ole Opry. Visit Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree, the second oldest radio show, airing after the Grand Ole Opry. Walk along Music Mile or Music Row. See Historic RCA Studio B, Music City’s only historic studio tour. Learn why they call it “Music City” at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. At night, the city comes alive! Hit up the Gulch entertainment district or the District, a vibrant part of Lower Broadway, where honky tonks and good restaurants converge. Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge and other honky tonks are jam-packed with people. Hear up-and-comers and renowned songwriters perform at legendary Bluebird Cafe, and see a show at famous Wildhorse Saloon.

Memphis is the birthplace of blues, soul and rock and roll, Memphis is rich in musical heritage and eternally linked with Elvis Presley. Graceland, his former home, should be the first stop for fans, while Beale Street, at the heart of the historic district, has recently re-emerged as a bustling entertainment centre with plenty of live music venues. Located on the Mississippi River in southwest Tennessee, Memphis is famous for the influential strains of blues, soul and rock ‘n’ roll that originated there. Elvis Presley, B.B. King and Johnny Cash recorded albums at the legendary Sun Studio, and Presley’s Graceland mansion is a popular attraction. Other music landmarks include the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum, Blues Hall of Fame and Stax Museum of American Soul Music.

New Orleans, this fabulous city, also known as the ‘Big Easy’, is home of jazz. With its laid-back attitude, narrow streets, wrought iron balconies and flower-bedecked verandas, the French Quarter has been attracting visitors for many years. Stroll past the open doors of bars and cafés, where you’ll hear snatches of music, on an optional walking tour of the area this afternoon. New Orleans is famous for its spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades and street parties.
