ALABAMA MUSIC HALL OF FAME

We decided to drive on the Natchez Trace Parkway today. The Parkway is beautiful -speed limit - 50 mph. I loved the slow pace. When you cross the Tennessee River it is so scenic. The Parkway goes from Natchez, MS to Nashville, TN.
On Friday, one of the places we didn't have time to visit in Tuscumbia, AL was the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. We're glad we went back. Alabama's history includes so many talented musicians and entertainers - many we were surprised to hear from Alabama. Whether you like rock, rhythm and blues, gospel, soul, country, opera, classical or contemporary music the Hall of Fame is full of surprises. We had no idea how important Muscle Shoals was to music. Hank Williams, Lionel Richie and Nat "King" Cold are just a few of the superstars. Taylor Hicks' purple velvet jacket is on display. The group, Alabama's, tour bus was on display.
Tammy Wynette is from Red Bay, Alabama, by the way. Red Bay has a Tammy Wynette Highway in town. All the exhibits are interesting and very well presented.
