Not just the home and final resting place of Elvis Presley, Memphis, the largest city in the state with a population of 700,000, is in its own right a musical city on the level of Nashville to the east, New Orleans to the south and St. Louis to the north.
The Mississippi Delta blues, a raw, emotive music, was born on the banks of the famous river in the town where W.C. Handy and B.B. King were also born. Add in some of the best offerings of honest-to-goodness southern cuisine, like barbecued ribs and fried chicken and you, too, may find Memphis was your favorite place in America!
