These lines are operated by the Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA), and were put into operation over fifty years after Memphis' original streetcar network was dismantled in the 1940s.

Nostalgia was nominated for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album at the 57th Grammy Awards on February 8, 2015. The movie "I Cover the Waterfront" title song appears in the film only as an instrumental written by Johnny Green and Edward Heyman. The song went on to become a jazz standard recorded by many artists, including Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, The Ink Spots, Ella Fitzgerald and now Annie Lennox. Nostalgia is the sixth studio album by Annie Lennox. The 2014 album is Lennox's first one in four years, and her third album of covers. Nostalgia consists of cover versions of compositions from the Great American Songbook; researched and learned by Annie Lennox as she studied archival footage uploaded to YouTube.
We tried out the new Big River Crossing bridge over the Mississippi River from Memphis into Arkansas, which just opened this past Saturday. They restored an old unused car bridge built in the early 1900s for pedestrians, and it connects to riverfront trails in Memphis and Arkansas. I thought it was a unique view of the river that I had never been able to see before. It made me feel as if I was on vacation at a remote park or something. If you're ever in the area, I recommend trying it out and perhaps walking along the Memphis waterfront, seeing the old buildings, and trying out some of the quaint restaurants in the area. Thanks for watching! Also try my New Hampshire Appalachian Trail videos! https://youtu.be/W_Rq8XME-t0
