Rock-A-Billy Park.

Rock-a-billy Park

Field review by the editors.

Jackson, Tennessee

Rock-a-billy Park was built in a vacant lot at the urging of Jackson businessman Henry Harrison, whose International Rockabilly Hall of Fame and Museum is just down the block. Rockabilly music is generally accepted to have been born in the honky tonk dance halls of Jackson in the 1950s.

When the museum isn't open, rockabilly fans can enjoy the park by walking in the footsteps along the Mr. Blue Suede Shoes Walkway (a sidewalk tribute to Jackson native Carl Perkins' rockabilly hit, "Blue Suede Shoes"), or by admiring the three-story tall-mural painted on the side of the museum, which portrays Perkins and his original band -- as well as an unexpected Paul McCartney, who is given credit for exposing rockabilly to an international audience.
