We depart on Tuesday 7th August for a 3 night stay in Nashville from where, after seeing the major sights including RCA’s legendary Studio B, we’ll enjoy a fun day in Dollywood – yee haa! We’ll visit the Johnny Cash Museum and also his ranch before heading to Jackson, Tennessee to see where Carl Perkins lived and to visit the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.
Next stop is Memphis – home of the Blues but birthplace of Rock’n’Roll and Soul and the most influential city in American music history...and we stay here for the Elvis Anniversary Week giving you plenty of time to visit Graceland and enjoy all things Elvis. We’ll show you Stax Studio and where other famous recording studios were based – Hi Records, American Sound, Royal and more, and take you to the most famous of them all – Sun Studio, home to hits by so many great artistes including the Million Dollar Quartet, Roy Orbison, Billy Lee Riley, The Dixie Cups, Howlin’ Wolf, Rufus Thomas and more. Time too to take a cruise on the mighty Mississippi River, visit the Rock & Soul Museum and the Gibson Guitar factory, dine on real Memphis Barbeque and, by night, take a walk on Beale, probably the world’s greatest music street where music emanates from practically every door.
Heading even deeper into ‘The Deep South’ we’ll visit Jerry Lee Lewis’ ranch before making our way to Tupelo, the once sleepy little cotton town where Elvis was born. Lots to see here - we’ll show you the Elvis sights including the Birthplace and Museum and you’ll have ample time to explore at leisure too – visit the superb Auto Museum and sample the sounds in the many live-music bars. Finally we head to Atlanta for our direct flight back to the UK arriving on Monday 20th August.
The holiday price is inclusive of your British Airways flights, 12 nights good grade hotel accommodation (with breakfasts and taxes), all coaching, admissions (inc. Graceland), gratuities and the services of an experienced Tour Manager.
