How to use "The Soundtrack of America. Made in Tennessee."

"The Soundtrack of America." and "Made in Tennessee." will remain together in the logo. The two should never be used separately in logo form. When space and size allows, the logo should also incorporate the URL, tnvacation.com, along the bottom of the design.

In phrasing and when used in copy, “Made in Tennessee." may stand alone when referring to the things that are uniquely created in Tennessee. “The Soundtrack of America.” may be used when referring to such things as the sounds of nature, experiences, and the music of Tennessee, but it should not be used without “Made in Tennessee.”

I love visiting Tennessee to shop for all of the "Made in Tennessee." products. The roar of the engines at the Bristol Motor Speedway is "The Soundtrack of America. Made in Tennessee."
