And the Rest 

If Memphis only had Elvis Presley and Willie Mitchell, we'd have plenty to be proud of. But over the decades the home of the blues has played host to B.B. King, Ike and Tina Turner, Jerry Lee Lewis, Rufus and Carla Thomas, Al Green, the Staple Singers, Alex Chilton, Johnny Cash, Jim Dickinson, Otis Redding, Three Six Mafia, Isaac Hayes, and a host of other artists too numerous to mention. And, if you take a little trip to MTV.com and watch episodes of Craig Brewer's $5 Cover, you'll discover that Memphis' rich musical history isn't all history. We're still making some of the sweetest sounds on the planet.
