Free specialty tag supports music education

-A A +A

The Memphis Rock’n’Soul Museum has a special offer for Tennessee residents that costs nothing but will provide an  annual revenue stream toward music education.

The museum has been working diligently to reach a goal of 1,000 pre-sold “music-themed” specialty Tennessee license plates, with annual revenue from these plates going to music education in Tennessee.

“After nearing 800 sold, two generous donors wrote checks to purchase the balance of 200, thus assuring our goal,” said John Doyle, executive director of the Memphis Rock’n’Soul Museum.

“Now we simply need 200 supporters who own vehicles licensed in Tennessee to agree to take one of these free license plates for one year and proudly display it on your car, promoting Tennessee as the State of American Music.”

Those wishing to accept one of these plates may email Doyle at john@memphisrocknsoul.org with their name, address, city, ZIP code and county by June 15.

“After the first year, you’re welcome to renew your Tennessee Music Plate for $35 annually, but there is no requirement to do so,” Doyle said.

“By accepting it for one year, you help us achieve the goal, and then make them available statewide driving annual sales of this great plate — and annual revenue for music education,” he added.

Doyle said once plates are produced, those who opt to receive one will receive a voucher from Tennessee Department of Transportation so they can either get the license plate right then or wait until renewal
