Grand Americana…The Ultimate Deep South Music Tour!
This fabulous escorted tour begins in Memphis, home to Elvis Presley’s Graceland Mansion and Sun Studio and visits Tina Turner’s “Nutbush City Limits” before arriving in Nashville – Music City USA! We’ll spend several days exploring the most famous attractions and enjoying great live music, before making our way to Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg and waving goodbye to Tennessee.
A short journey south finds us in Muscle Shoals, a sleepy little area in North Alabama which became the Hit Recording Capital of the World! During our time here, we’ll enjoy small town American hospitality and southern cooking at it’s very best. We’ll visit extraordinary venues and hear fantastic live music from local session musicians who can tell us stories of FAME & “The Swampers”! We’ll enjoy a day trip to Tupelo Mississippi, visiting the Birthplace of The King and Red Bay Alabama – home of country superstar Tammy Wynette, before making our way to historic Montgomery, the capital of Alabama and home of the legendary Hank Williams. It is also the city credited with the event that sparked off the Civil Rights Movement – when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a bus – in 1955!
Finally, we’ll travel along the beautiful Gulf Coast to Mobile Alabama, before finishing our journey in New Orleans Louisiana, home of the Mardi Gras, Creole Cuisine, The French Quarter and of course Bourbon Street!
