I’m headin’ down the Atlanta Highway
Lookin’ for the love getaway
Headed for the love getaway, love getaway
I got me a car, it’s as big as a whale
And we’re headin’ on down to the Love ShackThe B-52s
Where you might just find your favourite Travel buddy.
I caught one of Georgia’s finest, The B-52s, last year at the American Travel Fair http://www.ipw.com.
Now they are more like The B-152s by now but they still had us rocking in the aisles.
Georgia, being in the Deep South, is infused with music and heritage.
Athens is home to angst kings REM, while James Brown, the Godfather of Soul is from Augusta.
Which just goes to prove that it’s there are some natty dressers there and it’s not all just v-necked golf jerseys.
Otis Redding also famously left his home in Georgia headings for the Frisco Bay only to sit on its deck.
Otis, methinks, was wasting’ time though. He’d have been better off staying put in Georgia though.
So why am I telling you all this? Because of the launch of the Macon Music Trail.
Now I like an oul’ Deep South Music Trail and the Blues Trail in Mississippi is one you shouldn’t miss http://msbluestrail.org.
And its accompanying review from a certain someone https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/the-story-of-the-blues/.
Macon lies in the centre of Georgia which is why I guess it is called ‘the heart of Georgia.’
It is 85kms from Atlanta which is a hub airport and hence well served from these islands. Visit http://www.google.com/flights.
