The heart and soul of American Music beats in the history of Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. These are the towns where the inspiration for our uniquely American Music styles were born and where they grew to maturity. On this three city tour you’ll hear Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Rock n’ Roll, Soul, Dixieland Jazz, and Cajun. Why, you’ll even have the chance to write and perform a song of your own.
A historical journey? Or a good time with learning? They should always be one and the same. Join us as we learn about Prohibition in Knoxville , an infamous address on Thunder Road. Sample Moonshine.

A restaurant and theater that doesn’t advertise because they don’t want the coppers to find em. Join us at the Smoky Mountain Speakeasy – but ya gotta promise not tell anyone where it is.
