* Cue Johnny and June’s “Jackson”
I’m heading out of Charleston this weekend for an adventure in Jackson, Mississippi. Thanks to the kind folks at The Westin, my blonde counterpart, Jenna, and I will be taking in the sights and sounds of the city. Naturally, I began my research on the musicians from Mississippi and let me tell you it’s quite the range. From country songstresses, Faith Hill and Tammy Wynette to the nitty, gritty blues of Muddy Waters and B.B. King, Mississippi has been the home state to many successful artists. This southern town just isn’t blues and country, rock bands The Weeks and Grammy-nominated North Mississippi Allstars are notable groups that also hail from the Magnolia State. I created a playlist that will be perfect for our road trip, and make sure to follow us along on Instagram (jennawessinger and discoteepee) to see what’s really going on in Jackson. Stay tuned for a full travel guide recap.
“Yeah, I’m goin’ to Jackson,
Look out Jackson town”
