Welcome to Tennessee

Tennessee is the birthplace of country music, and has played a crucial role in the development of rock and roll and early blues. Beale Street in Memphis is considered by most to be the birthplace of the blues, with musicians such as W.C. Handy performing in its clubs in the early 1900's. Tennessee won its nickname as The Volunteer State during the War of 1812 when volunteer soldiers from Tennessee displayed marked valor in the Battle of New Orleans. Tennessee was admitted to the union June 1, 1796 as the 16th state and is now home to an estimated 471,316 small businesses.
