With Frommer's in hand, you'll discover the highlights of two major capitals of American music: Nashville, country music's mecca, and Memphis, the city that gave birth to the blues. We'll take you to the hottest shows, and to sizzling nightclubs where you can two-step, hear the old masters play, or discover up-and-coming new talent. From the Grand Ol' Opry to the hallowed halls of Graceland, you'll walk in the footsteps of musical giants.

We've also got the lowdown on the region's best restaurants, serving everything from elegant New Southern cuisine to down-home barbecue. And you'll have a wide variety of accommodations to choose from: the classic Peabody, with its signature marching ducks; the bustling Opryland Hotel; B&Bs with true Southern hospitality; and reliable, affordable motels.

Detailed and accurate, it all comes complete with neighborhood maps; a complete shopping guide; the best trip-planning advice; and side trips to nearby distilleries and Civil War battlefields.
