Memphis Tennessee Skyline

Memphis

Memphis is the motherland of American music. Here, Elvis made his first recording and W.C. Handy penned the blues. As a result, many of the city's sites have direct ties to rock, soul, gospel and blues music, and pilgrims gather to pay homage. If Memphis had a soundtrack, its title track would be a peppy rock number to commemorate the city's prominence as the birthplace of rock ’n’ roll.
