Jackson, Tennessee is located on Interstate 40 about halfway between Nashville (home of country music and birthplace of hillbilly music) and Memphis (hotbed for early rock and roll, R&B, and blues). In fact, a favorite phrase for the location of Jackson is "between Graceland and the Grand Ole Opry." Jackson is located within a few hours of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri, & Kentucky and is adjacent to Interstate 40, one of the most traveled highways in the United States.
