Beginning May 4th, state and local community leaders as well as tourism officials in the five southern states will launch the “Americana Music Triangle,” a project focused on the music, culture and history of the south.
Celebrating the 1,500 miles of highway that connect Memphis, New Orleans and Nashville, Americana Music Triangle has been created to connect music travelers with people, music, stories and communities along the Gold Record Road and throughout the American South.
“Americana Music Triangle is a 501c3 nonprofit grassroots organization founded to define and present the collective cultural destination between New Orleans, Memphis and Nashville in the best way we know how: by giving you the insider tools and information to see, taste, hear and explore it for yourself,” the site’s official Facebook reads. “What we’re building is part music history resource and part road trip travel guide, curated by a team of experts and created for music lovers and curious explorers of the world.”
