Tennessee is a state situated in the southeastern area of the United States. Tennessee is the 36th biggest and the sixteenth most crowded of the 50 United States. Tennessee is circumscribed by Kentucky and Virginia toward the north, North Carolina toward the east, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi toward the south, and Arkansas and Missouri toward the west. With regards to music, Tennessee is unbelievable for the foot-tapping, soul-sparing kind – blues, twang, nation, shake and roll, and everything in the middle. In Memphis, pay praise to the King at Elvis Presley's home at Graceland, or duck into a blues bar on Beale Street. Catch unrecorded music at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium and get a tad nation at the Grand Ole Opry. Visit Bristol, the Birthplace of Country Music, where the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers discovered their popularity, and look at the school building turned-exhibition hall respecting Tennessee local Tina Turner in Brownsville.
