Memphis Tennessee(population of 1,260,581) is the home of founders and establishers of various American music genres, including Blues, Gospel, Rock n' Roll, and "sharecropper" country music (in contrast to the "rhinestone" country sound of Nashville). Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and B. B. King were all getting their starts in Memphis in the 1950s. They are respectively dubbed the "King" of Country, Rock n' Roll, and Blues.

We were only in Memphis for 16 hours and it was overcast and rainy the whole time but we had FUN! These pics were taken thru the hotel window so some have a little glare.

(constructive critique is welcome)

This is very close to where the musician Jeff Buckley drowned back in the late 1990's (that is Mud Harbor Island, I think I remember from our visit?). Sad story- if you have never heard it, you can read about it here:
