    Memphis, Tennessee was named after ancient Egypt’s capital city by John Overton, Andrew Jackson, and James Winchester when they founded it on May 22, 1819. The ancient Memphis sat along the banks of the Nile River, but America’s somewhat more modern version enjoys its place beside the Mississippi River. As can be expected, iconic music legends the likes of Elvis, Otis Redding, and B.B. King probably draw music enthusiasts and tourists of all ages and types from around the globe.
