Cool, and here's the map of the route.

From those who know the area, are the roads, cities and towns interesting in themselves for a road trip? I love the music angle, but if I'm gonna get my wife and son aboard they'll need something else.

Oh sure, excise most of Alabama from that map because obviously WC Handy and Hank Williams and Sun Ra and the Five Blind Boys and Percy Sledge and Wilson Pickett and the Louvin Brothers don't count.....

Fuck you, Tennessee.

Nashville to Memphis is a drag (3 hours straight west on I-40), but from Memphis it looks like you take more state roads than interstate, e.g. down to Clarksdale. From there you're following the Mississippi, which I would love to do someday, through Greenville, Natchez and Vicksburg, down into Louisiana. It's not spectacular scenery, but well worth the trip.

...but they left out Bristol!

I was born in Bristol. I understand the impulse to leave it out.

The Crooked Road lovingly envelopes Bristol and other far East Tenn. lands.
