Visit the little house where rockabilly pioneer Carl Perkins once lived, just outside of Tiptonville. It was in these cotton fields that he learned to play a second-hand guitar, blending the rhythm-and-blues sound with the hillbilly twang he loved. Stop in for information about the Tiptonville area, and play a few Perkins tunes on the jukebox--some you're sure to recognize, like "Blue Suede Shoes."
