Taste of Tennessee

If you are looking for a TASTE OF TENNESSEE, look no further than the world-famous General Jackson Showboat. Spend an afternoon onboard with us where you can sample the many styles of music that made Tennessee famous. 

Our musical appetizer begins in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee with the energetic music of bluegrass, roots and Americana music featuring fiddling favorites like “Orange Blossom Special” to the homespun songs of musical superstar, Dolly Parton. Our next course features a generous helping of the traditional and contemporary country music that made Nashville, Music City, with songs from Reba McEntire to Charlie Daniels to Garth Brooks. Course number three serves up the music of Memphis R&B and Blues as we pay tribute to Sun Records’ famous Million Dollar Quartet including Jerry Lee Lewis and the King himself, Elvis Presley. Our final sweet treat is an inspiring multimedia and musical medley of patriotic anthems.

A versatile and virtuoso showband are our Tennessee tour guides and take you on this exciting musical journey featuring authentic country picking and grand country harmonies, all supported by glamorous costumes, lights and multimedia. Come dine on the best music that Tennessee has to offer. Enjoy a TASTE OF TENNESSEE on the General Jackson Showboat!
