True Tennessee Music With True Tennessee Whiskey

Tennessee, the heart of the American South, has earned its reputation as the home of music and whiskey. With rolling hills, buzzing cities, the Great Smokeys, and a long history of true American whiskey, it’s no surprise that this state has given birth to legendary musical genres like country, blues, and rock ‘n’ roll. 

Tennessee’s rich heritage in crafting unparalleled whiskies means our home state is the ideal place to sit back and enjoy premium distilled spirits while listening to some musical greats. It’s time to explore the natural synergy between Tennessee’s musical legacy and its exceptional whiskey and the best places in East Tennessee to hear some homegrown tunes. 

The Tennessee Music Greats

Tennessee’s Musicians Hall of Fame is crowded with A-list names. Dolly Parton is one of the world’s most recognized Tennessee voices. Dolly isn’t only known for her music; let’s not forget her philanthropic work and Dollywood. If she didn’t put Tennessee on the map, she definitely lit it up in lights. 

Other prominent music names from Tennessee are Tina Turner, Miley Cyrus, and Justin Timberlake. Country singer Kenny Chesney was born in Knoxville, while Aretha Franklin came from Memphis. The roll call of influential Tennessee musicians is endless, and, luckily, so are opportunities to catch live music. 

East Tennessee boasts loads of options for concerts and live music. Knoxville hosts concerts and shows featuring various genres of music, from classical to blues, country, and tribute songs. In Gatlinburg and Sevierville, you can get a good taste of Tennessee hospitality by stopping by one of the many bars and restaurants with live music.

Suppose you’ll settle in and listen to some good old Kitty Wells, the apparent “Queen of Country Music,” maybe songs from the “Empress of Blues,” Bessie Smith, or perhaps you’ll stick with nostalgia from Kenny Chesney. In that case, you’ll need some proper Tennessee whiskey to wash it down.
