Nashville may be known as Music City, but it’s certainly not the only place in the state with a musical connection. In fact, all 95 counties have some sort of link to music, from birthplaces to resting places, radio stations to venues and much more – and the new Tennessee Music Pathways will lead you there.

Country music may be the state’s calling card, but Tennessee has historical connections to a myriad of musical styles from rock ‘n’ roll and rockabilly, gospel to soul, bluegrass to the blues. The new pathways highlight music history’s hidden gems, such as Lawrenceburg, where James Vaughan established the style of Southern gospel music, or Brownsville, where you can find Tina Turner’s one-room schoolhouse next door to the house where bluesman Sleepy John Estes once lived.
