Chix at the Crossroads

📍Spacey’s Rock N Roll Tattoo is honored to be the route stop in Meridian, MS. 🗺️ We look forward to showing the AMCA and Riveter Chapter the rich musical heritage in Meridian, MS. 🎸

Join us for a Front Street Celebration as we welcome the lady riders with live music, vendors, motorcycles and tons of fun!

Throughout the 1,200-mile route, riders will be steeped in the history of American music, deepening appreciation for the pioneering spirit of the early self-expressionists that span many musical genres. Once the riders depart from Maggie Valley, the group will spend two weeks on the road to experience various aspects of our American music heritage.
CHIX at the CROSSROADS 🏍️
Building on the phenomenal success of their June 2022 event Chix on 66 – Powered by Harley-Davidson, the Riveter Chapter of the AMCA is planning another journey through Americana called Chix at the Crossroads. This time, the Chix will travel through the American South. Beginning in Maggie Valley, North Carolina at Wheels Through Time Museum, the Chix will depart North Carolina for Tennessee, spending the night in Chattanooga before traveling northeast to the musically rich city of Nashville for a couple nights.
🛑Heading southwest from Nashville, the Chix will ride a portion of the Natchez Trace Parkway to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, on to Tupelo, Meridian, and Natchez, Mississippi, before turning north on the Blues Highway toward Clarksdale, Mississippi, where they will pause for a few nights to take in blues history, both living and preserved. Finally the Chix will end their musical tour in another southern city rich with history – Memphis, Tennessee.
The southeastern United States, with its mountain ranges, vast farmlands, rivers and swamps, often unfriendly weather, and punishing social structures provided creative souls with much raw material for their music. Out of this primordial cultural gumbo came country, blues, folk, rockabilly, soul, later R&B, southern rock, and pop.
Beginning with the John and Alan Lomax field recordings of African American work songs, the musical output of this region has been documented almost from the beginning of recording technology. Later, small studios all over the Southeast tapped into local musical resources, and produced literally thousands of songs that became hits – many becoming cultural touchstones.
