American music, including the blues (hence my post title,) has many of its roots in Memphis, Tennessee. You know who else has their roots in Memphis? Justin Timerberlake!  JT keeps close ties to this magical city. He owns a golf course (called Mirimichi), has his own tequilia (901 - the Memphis area code) and is a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlier NBA team. In addition, this November Mr. Timberlake is stopping by his hometown to perform on his 20/20 Experience World Tour.

Memphis is one of my favorite cities. It is the perfect blend of southern charm, soul and rock n' roll. In addition it's full of funky, historic and world-famous cultural attractions like the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, Sun Studio and the National Civil Rights Museum.

A vibrant music scene is one of the many draws of Memphis. Talented musicians (including the uber talented singer/songwriter cousin of yours truly (Phoebe Elliot) flock to this city for the experience and opportunity. You can hear their talent live at many of the cool venus such as the Levitt Shell, Hi-Tone or even your local dive bar. And speaking of dive bars, Memphis was named by Travel + Leisure as one of the best cities for barbecue (duh) as well as burgers, pizza and dive bars. 

So let's recap: the best music, the best food, some fabulous dive bars and a Justin Timberlake concert to boot - I want to go!
