Tennessee music getting global attention in series

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A television music and travel series highlighting Tennessee is set for international broadcast beginning Friday.

"Music Voyager - Tennessee" takes viewers along Interstate 40, dubbed "the music highway," from Bristol to Memphis. It is a four-part series representing the music of East, Middle and West Tennessee, and Nashville's most prolific songwriters.

It will air on the BBC and elsewhere overseas. In this country, it is to air on Public Broadcasting Service stations beginning in April.

The series will also air on in-flight television programing for 13 airlines and be available in-room at several luxury and resort hotels throughout the world, according to the Tennessee Department of Tourism Development.
