Rock, folk, jazz, soul, country, indie, and blues tunes about the Home of the Blues

Traveling to mighty Memphis, Tennessee for the holiday, via a slew of songs about that great music town. We'll hear from such giants of old as Duke Ellington, Bessie Smith, Hoagy Carmichael, Chuck Berry, and Roy Acuff, through Bob Dylan, Solomon Burke, John Hiatt, The Band, and songwriting great Dan Penn. to contemporary heroes like Sharon Jones (singing with Memphis royalty Booker T. Jones), Chris Stapleton, PJ Harvey, and Rufus Wainwright -- the latter two performing songs about the tragic Memphis death of Jeff Buckley. Plus the colorfully named Colorblind James Experience, Eggs Over Easy, and Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash, and more.
