          As the Birthplace of America’s Music,
    Mississippi’s musical landscape is much like
    the golf scene. Exciting and varied, it reflects
    regional influences. Mississippi has been
    instrumental in the birth, growth and popularity
    of musical genres such as blues, country and,
    of course, rock ’n’ roll, thanks to its most
    famous musical son, Elvis Presley. These
    musical styles are truly Mississippi-made and
    reflected in the Mississippi Blues Trail and
    Country Music Trail. The song lyrics tell our story,
    while the beats, rhythms and melodies reflect
    our diverse heritage.
          Another exciting trail springing forth is the
    Mississippi Writers Trail. The first marker was
    unveiled September 2018 at Eudora Welty’s
    house and garden in Jackson. Similar to the
    music trails, the Writers Trail will be a
    compilation of marked locales honoring
                                                                     BEAU RIVAGE RESORT & CASINO, BILOXI
