TDTD and tourism partners in Lexington, Tennessee celebrated Grammy Award-winning songwriter and producer Buddy Cannon by unveiling a Tennessee Music Pathways marker that details his beginnings and career accomplishments.
Those in attendance included Buddy Cannon himself as well as Whisperin’ Bill Anderson, one of the most successful songwriters in country music history, and local leaders. More than 200 locations statewide indicate markers, statues, murals and attractions that celebrate and educate on the deep music roots of Tennessee.
Seven genres of music call Tennessee home. Those and many more are written, recorded and played live here every day. Even more reasons The Soundtrack of America is made in Tennessee. Tennessee Music Pathways is an initiative to connect you to the people, places and genres significant to music history. From the largest cities to the smallest communities, this statewide program identifies, explains and preserves the legacy of music in Tennessee. Whether it is a story of the past, a star of the present or the promise of the future, Tennessee Music Pathways lets you follow the music.
