MUSIC, CULTURE & HISTORY
Celebrate the sights and sounds of the South as we step into the world of Robert Johnson, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and, of course, Elvis Presley. Cross the Mississippi Delta, where the blues began, to the birthplace of jazz in New Orleans, and follow the river to the hometown of The King and rock ‘n’ roll before heading west, to Nashville – the world capital of country music. Visit the places that inspired some of popular music’s greatest icons, and see the studios where they recorded their classic tracks.
