As I’m sure you know, Tennessee is the place to go for many things, including its music scene. We think it’s such a joy to live in a space that celebrates auditory art and self-expression! Nashville may be Music City, but the Tennessee Music Highway runs straight through the belly of the state, exiting south into Mississippi and finishing up in the heart of the Big Easy – New Orleans. The following list highlights seven gems along the way (and one bonus!) that we think you’ll enjoy visiting when you’re looking for somewhere different to explore when you’re driving along Music Highway Tennessee.
