This is the perfect tour for rock ‘n’ roll, blues, and country music lovers. Enjoy city sightseeing in Memphis and an orientation tour of Nashville with a stop in Tupelo, Elvis’ birthplace. Begin your trip in Memphis and visit the Rock ’n’ Soul Museum; Stax Museum of American Soul Music, a tribute to the great Memphis soul musicians; Sun Studio, probably the most famous recording studio in the world; and Graceland, where you experience life as Elvis did. Head east to “Music City USA”—Nashville—for reserved premier seats at the world-famous Grand Ole Opry. Visit the Johnny Cash Museum to see historical documents, awards, costumes and instruments. Step inside Studio B, Nashville’s oldest surviving recording studio and one of the country’s most important studios, and go behind the scenes of the music industry at the Country Music Hall of Fame. Another special treat awaits: a private performance and discussion with John Carter Cash, Johnny and June Cash’s only son. Be at Graceland for the candlelight vigil, when fans are invited to walk up the driveway to Elvis’ gravesite carrying a candle in quiet remembrance.
