Today, Memphis is a growing city, with several major company headquarters, including FedEx, AutoZone and International Paper.

High-tech industries, health care and biomedical research are also important segments of the city's economy. Known as the birthplace of the Blues and home of Elvis Presley, Memphis is one of America's top cities for tourism.
Memphis nightlife also revolves around its downtown music scene. Its claim to fame-- besides great barbecue-- is its blues music, which can be heard nightly at establishments all over town.
