Located near the Great Smoky Mountains in eastern Tennessee, the city of Knoxville is home to about 184,000 people. Although not as high-profile as Nashville as far as the music industry goes, Knoxville’s musical heritage is both rich and ongoing. Not only has Knoxville been a long-time hub for ‘roots’ music such as country, bluegrass and folk, but today it also nurtures an active modern music scene with genres that include alternative rock, punk, hip-hop and metal. Plenty of well-known musicians and bands have ties to the Knoxville area, including country legends Homer & Jethro, Chet Atkins and Kenny Chesney; Brian Bell (guitarist for rock band Weezer); Brent Smith (frontman for rock band Shinedown); deathcore band Whitechapel; and American Idol contestant Didi Benami, just to name a few.
