Travel through Mississippi River Country and you’re traveling through the history of American music. The blues was born in the Mississippi Delta—this region is home to luminaries like B.B. King and Muddy Waters. Jazz music took shape in New Orleans, and farther north in Tennessee and Arkansas, you’ll meet unforgettable figures like Elvis and Johnny Cash. And let’s not forget Mississippi River Country’s other superstars like Dolly Parton, Bob Dylan and Prince, just to name a few.
