Music Makers: Southern U.S.

Listen to the sounds of the South

You will not find a musical nexus like this anywhere else in the world.  Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans are all at the roots of the family tree of today’s popular music, and all three of them maintain an area of the city where one can wander up and down the street, listening to different live bands play in different clubs, bars and music halls.  Add Atlanta to that mix, a thriving center of Hip Hop, R&B, and indy-rock, and you get a travel experience that is literally music to your ears.  Roll from city to city with us as we rock out to live music, visit cultural sites and explore the unique offerings of the Southern U.S. region.
