A new website, Jackson: Hidden Tracks, has launched to promote the region’s music scene. Jackson: Hidden Tracks Facebook and Instagram pages have also launched.

“Jackson: Hidden Tracks is a campaign to share the rich music story of Jackson and rural West Tennessee that is rooted in blues, gospel and country,” says Lori Nunnery, executive director of Visit Jackson, Tennessee.

Nunnery says the goal is to inform residents and visitors about what makes Jackson a unique place for music lovers of all backgrounds to come together.

“Jackson features the great music you can only find halfway between Nashville and Memphis. On a given weekend, there are about 30+ live music events that people may attend,” Nunnery explains.
