Not a bad move, looks like they're realizing the numbers of the Hispanic market.

Being a tourist means they come then leave. I can understand why TN would want that.

Who knows---some day Tennessee officials may be trying to lure Hispanic Rock and Roll fans to visit Memphis, where they can go to "Tierra Agraciada," the home of "el Vis, el Rey".....might work (?)

Perhaps Nashville and Memphis will expand their musical offerings, or perhaps another Tennessee city can try to capture this emerging tourism market.

Considering the enormously high ratio of Hispanics to Whites (in comparison to surrounding cities, even Knoxville), I would say that Morristown has the best chance of capturing the Hispanic tourism market!
