Hope abounds in Tennessee. Every morning, I look out the window at the mountains of East Tennessee and they are teeming with wildlife. This year, the nation has sought refuge in the clean air of the Smoky Mountains. Not only are the streams filled with fish and game, but visitors too are streaming onto the parkway leading into the most visited National Park.
In times of trouble, people revert back to what they know and they know that Tennessee has a safe, comfortable feeling about it. Think barbecue, apple fritters, fried chicken and macaroni and cheese. They remember Dolly Parton at the Grand Ole Opry and Elvis at Graceland. They remember their Davy Crockett childhood and how it really was the greenest state in the land of the free. Home to three presidents, Tennessee has made its contribution on the world stage. Most remember Jack Daniels and Ole Smoky Moonshine more than the presidents.
And the music. Oh, the music that has been born in Tennessee. Memphis blues, Music City USA and the birth of Country have been pressed into our culture. That music comes from people though. Sorry Carolina, but nothing could be finer than Dollywood on a sunny Fall afternoon, a Friday night at the Opry or Beale Street jazz.
Tennessee is a safe bet. It’s comfortable and clean. People trust Tennessee because in hard times and good times, it remains the same. It is full of wonderment and wonderful people.
We’d like to invite you and your groups to experience all that Tennessee has to offer. We’d like to invite you to Tour Tennessee.
