International Rockabilly Hall Of Fame Museum- Jackson, TN


If you're a fan of rockabilly, roots, blues, country, etc., you want to stop in Jackson, TN to see the International Rockabilly Hall Of Fame Museum.  They are the only museum dedicated to preserving the great legacy of rockabilly music.  We happened to run into Henry Harrison (museum President) and he told us stories of when he used to box with people like Dorsey Burnette in the 50's.  The cost is just $10 a person to take the tour and our tour guide Charles Duncan was one of the most pleasant people you'll ever meet.  They even let you sign their wall during your visit so you can go back to see your name there for years to come.  Go to their website to find out more info and how you can stop in and get a taste of rockabilly!!
