These two cities are on a roll. Nashville is home to more than 200 recording studios and 100 music clubs and venues showcasing great blues, jazz, gospel, rock, and of course, country music. A new $37 million Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is set to open in 2001, as is the new Frisk Center for Visual Arts. Thousands of new hotel rooms have been added in the last two years, as 9.5 million visitors arrived in 1998. Memphis, too, has long been known as the home of Graceland, but its attracting millions of new fans each year, too, all flocking to experience the city that gave birth to the blues.
A new state-of-the-art Gibson Guitar Plant will soon open for tours downtown and will contain the Smithsonians Rock n Soul: Social Crossroads exhibit. Sun Studios, which still operates as a recording studio is also opening a new museum, featuring rare recordings, photos, and other music memorabilia. And Peabody Place, a new $150 million retail center, promises to revitalize downtown.
All this new development is sure to attract even greater numbers of visitors, wholl rely on this completely updated new edition for all their travel needs. From blues clubs to the best BBQ joints, its all here in this concise, easy-to-use guide to Americas music capitals.
