Justin Timberlake and Tennessee Music Highlights


Tennessee Department of Tourist Development has released the 2014 Official Tennessee Vacation Guide in print and online as an e-guide. Both versions of the FREE guide are available by visiting tnvacation.com/guide/.


Music lives in Tennessee – and that message comes through loud and clear in the new 2014 Official Tennessee Vacation Guide. A striking cover shows native Tennessean and international superstar Justin Timberlake paying homage to Tennessee’s musical roots, while callouts highlight some of the state’s top music destinations.


“We’re thrilled to showcase Justin Timberlake on the cover of our 2014 Official Tennessee Vacation Guide as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of rock n’ roll and all that Tennessee offers as the global music destination of choice.” said Commissioner Susan Whitaker, Tennessee Department of Tourist Development.


Inside the guide, some of the music industry’s top celebrities, including Dolly Parton and Sheryl Crow, share their favorite Tennessee experiences throughout a dynamic photo essay highlighting several facets of the state’s travel industry. A series of features also showcases Tennessee music, food, spirits, outdoors, festivals and the diverse network of Discover Tennessee Trails & Byways, including can’t-miss stops along each one. A special double-page spread highlights Union City’s brand new $100 million attraction Discovery Park of America.


Add to that a list of annual events, regional overviews and best bets, maps, attraction  listings and more, and potential visitors have everything they need to plan the perfect Tennessee vacation.


Like last year, a new iPad app of the guide will be available soon in iTunes offering additional rich media and interactive content, as well as links to all advertisers.


More than 550,000 guides are available free at the state’s 14 Welcome Centers and to tourists requesting the publication via tnvacation.com and 1.800.GO2.TENN. It is also available as an e-guide at tnvacation.com. The guide is Tennessee’s primary vacation planning and marketing publication for domestic and international tradeshows.
