In 1901 Andrew Carnegie donated $70,000 for the construction of a library in Jackson, Tenn. Today, the ornate building is devoted to telling stories in a different way. In this episode, John Reitzammer takes us behind-the-scenes of the renovation of the building that now tells the stories of West Tennessee’s musical history. As part of the Americana Music Triangle, the Tennessee Music Museum highlights the lives and careers of artists like Carl Perkins, Eddy Arnold, Sonny Boy Williamson and others.

Later discover what happened during Union City’s 1954 10-day Centennial.
