Music of the South
Over the last several months we have noticed developing themes. Beginning in New Orleans through Memphis and on through Nashville we have been drawn to the music. Much of it interconnects these cities. You wonder if any of the music in one place could have happened if not for all the other places. The other strong connection, and an observed theme is Liquor.....but I'll save that for another post. Once in Memphis we headed to Graceland. We felt that it was more about the man than the music. To understand the music, you need see where it all happened. Downtown Memphis. While some of these places are still working recording studios, most offer a museum showcasing the history and the impact that their artists had on the world. The written tour guides suggests allowing an hour or two per visit. Somehow that didn't work for us as we found ourselves staying much longer.
