The Roots, Dustin Lynch, Elle King Set For ‘Six Degrees To Tennessee’ Event

Tennessee Tourism will host a one-night-only concert experience, the Six Degrees to Tennessee Roots Jam, in Memphis on Sept. 15. The show will feature The Roots, Elle King, Dustin Lynch, Estelle, JJ Julius Son from Kaleo, and The Isley Brothers, artists whose influences signify the connection nearly all musicians have to the state of Tennessee in six-degrees of separation or less.

The concert is being held to celebrate the launch of Tennessee Music Pathways, a statewide program designed to guide visitors to their musical points of interest through an online travel-planning experience featuring hundreds of landmarks and attractions promoting the seven musical genres—blues, bluegrass, country, gospel, soul, rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll—that call Tennessee home.

Six Degrees to Tennessee Roots Jam will be held at the historic New Daisy Theatre on Beale Street, a destination on the Pathways. Tickets to Six Degrees to Tennessee Roots Jam are free and will be available exclusively at

“We are looking forward to bringing our jam session to Memphis! It is always a great time getting our friends together on stage to perform, and we know that Memphis will be no exception,” said The Roots.

“Tennessee Music Pathways connects fans to the people, places and genres that make Tennessee the Soundtrack of America. From the largest cities to the smallest communities, this state-wide program identifies, explains, and preserves the legacy of music in Tennessee,” said Commissioner Kevin Triplett, Tennessee Department of Tourist Development. “The Six Degrees to Tennessee Roots Jam showcases the talents of artists who share a common love of music and a direct connection to the music that is made every day in Tennessee.”
