Recently, Patty and I traveled to Tennessee to document the K-State football team’s trip to the Autozone Liberty Bowl to play Arkansas on January 2, 2016. We drove down early to Memphis and took two days walking around the “Home of the Blues.”

We dined at Corky’s Ribs and BBQ. Then, we spent six hours on world famous Beale Street wandering in and out of clubs and listening to some wonderful musicians.

The next morning, we visited the legendary Sun Studio. Chester “Howlin’ Wolf” Burnett, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and U2, all have recorded albums in “The Birthplace of Rock N’ Roll.” We ate lunch at Aldo’s Pizza Pies, a Memphis institution. Afterwards, we toured The National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel. It was surreal to stand where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968. We ended the day by going to the Peabody Hotel so we could see the ducks that swim in the lobby fountain.

We couldn’t leave Memphis without seeing Elvis Presley’s Graceland home. We took a self-guided tour through his mansion, his car collection and his two private planes. We stopped for lunch at Central BBQ to enjoy some great food. Finally, we visited the Gibson Guitar Factory to see the new Les Paul models in the showroom.

We joined the football team on day three. Together, we went to the Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid, watched the Miami Heat play the Memphis Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum, and ate dinner at Charles Vergos’ Rendezvous famous barbecue restaurant.

Memphis was amazing and we hope to return one day for more music and food.

I was honored to join the team that documented K-State’s head coach Bill Snyder as he was inducted into the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City on December 8, 2015.

K-State is bowl bound for the sixth consecutive season after the Wildcats defeated West Virginia 24-23 in Manhattan, Kansas on December 5, 2015. K-State will play Arkansas at the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tennessee on January 2, 2016.
