The three stars on Tennessee's flag represent Eastern Tennessee, Middle Tennessee, and Western Tennessee. Each of these regions has a rich heritage. West Tennessee is famous for its barbecue, rock'n'roll, and blues music. The heartland of Middle Tennessee is home to Music City, the Cumberland River, and antebellum homes. Over in East Tennessee, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, bluegrass, and Appalachian crafts tell quite a story.
