Southern Avenue - Memphis Originals
It’s the Birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll, the Home of the Blues and the starting point of soul. Music legends including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, B.B. King, W.C. Handy and Otis Redding made their marks on Memphis, where you can hear their influences today.
To complete the “musical medley,” visit Graceland, Sun Studio, the Memphis Music Hall of Fame, Stax Museum of American Soul Music, the Blues Hall of Fame, and the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum. At night, take a walk down Beale Street or stop by Overton Square and listen to the live music Memphis makes today.
