The History of Political Songs and Jingles in TennesseeAlbert Gore, Sr. playing a fiddle

Created in 2012 and expanded in 2014, this exhibit was curated by John Fabke and Kent Syler, and is also a collaboration between the Center for Popular Music. In a state with such a rich musical heritage, it seems natural that music has played an important role in Tennessee politics. We invite you to explore the many facets of political songs and jingles in Tennessee and American history.
