Experience a vacation – only made in Tennessee
The Music. Made in Tennessee.
Listen closely. Tennessee’s music is America’s soundtrack. It’s the foot-tapping, head-bobbing, soul-saving kind. You’ll hear it in the lyrics and melodies found in the home and birthplace of country, blues, rock ‘n’ roll, soul and everything in between. From the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville to Beale Street in Memphis to bluegrass jams on the porches of Bristol, Tennessee is where it all began and never stopped.
It’s that magic you can only taste in every sip of oak-barrel-aged Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, and each bite of “I’ve-died-and-gone-to-heaven” Southern cooking. It's that creative spirit America was built on, crafted by artists, visionaries and pioneers. Close your eyes and feel it – it’s uniquely Tennessee. Come visit. Let it touch you. It’s a vacation that can only be “Made in Tennessee.”
Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the USA.

Every bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey is made from a single spring of water in Lynchburg.
