Even though Tennessee is just a hop, skip and a jump over the Blue Ridge Mountains, I feel like I haven’t explored it to its fullest. I’ve driven through it many times and even spent a few summers there, and yet I’ve never been to Nashville and Memphis — two of the most important cities in music history. I’m sure due to take a proper road trip to the Volunteer State, complete with a stop at Graceland and a show the Ryman Auditorium. This state is also a hot spot for great food and good design, as you’ll see in this Tennessee gift guide. I just want to surround myself with these golden hues. Clearly, I need to make this trip happen! // susannah
