This giveaway is now closed.

Memphis is a place for music.

It is considered by many to be the birthplace of the blues, and has produced some of the biggest, most innovative names in rock ‘n’ roll.

The city – located just a few hours drive from here – has even inspired a multiple Tony Award-winning Broadway musical of the same name.

Memphis will stop the Walton Arts Center for a string of performances from Feb. 5-10, and we’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away to the show.

Win ’em.

How to enter

There is arguably no city in the world with a richer musical history than Memphis. It has been home to legendary performers like B.B. King, James Cotton, Al Green, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, and countless others.

Based loosely on the story of a Memphis radio DJ and a club singer looking for her big break, Memphis touches on a piece of that expansive musical history.

Leave a comment telling us the name of your favorite Memphis musician, and you’re entered. If you need a cheat sheet, here’s decent place to start.
