Nashville, Tennessee


Visit Tennessee


Tennessee is yet another southern state known for its immense contribution to music; in this case American roots music, from bluegrass, country, gospel, and blues to rockabilly, rock 'n' roll and soul.

The state is made up of three distinct regions: the western lowlands of the Mississippi, the central plateau, and the eastern Appalachian Mountains.

Across the state there are plenty of civil war sites, distilleries, and outdoor adventure.
