Tennessee has music deep within its soul.  Several genres of American music have their roots and branches here: bluegrass and Appalachian music in the eastern parts of the state; country, Americana, and pop in Nashville; and blues, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll in Memphis. Aside from Tennessee's music scene the natural beauty of the state is awe inspiring. The entire eastern flank of the state is covered by the foothills of the Appalachians and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Water seems to flow everywhere, so you never have to venture far to find a river, lake, or trail to discover.
