NPT’s June Membership Campaign kicks off June 1 and includes music shows – some with ticket and meet-&-greet offers – and a new Tennessee Crossroads special. Just in time for summer, Weekend Getaway, a 90-minute Crossroads episode, premieres Thursday, June 7, at 7 p.m. and features suggested itineraries for quick trips in East, Middle and West Tennessee.
First, Danielle Allen heads home to Memphis, where she books accommodations in the elegant and James Lee House and delves into the soulful connections of a storied record label at the Stax Museum. You can’t go to Memphis and not sample barbecue, so Danielle makes a stop at The BBQ Shop. Next, Rob Wilds visits the Cumberland Plateau, checks into the Sewanee Inn, has a meal at Jim Oliver’s Smokehouse Restaurant and explores South Cumberland State Park. Finally, Tennessee Crossroads host Joe Elmore finds the hospitable Gracehill Inn in the Smokies, dines at Crockett’s Breakfast Camp and gets artistic at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts.
