8. Big Tennessee

This David R tune is one of three described as composed by a local fiddler and transcribed by John Gillaspy. Garry Harrison says it is related to “Muddy Road to Kansas,” a common tune with many titles. (Dear Old Illinois, #154-156) Brad Leftwich plays “Hell on the Nine Mile,” to which it may be related.
