2 0 GRAMMY DOWN SOUTH Until earlier this year, music fans interested in learning about the history of the Grammy Awards had to go to Los Angeles to visit the Grammy Museum. But in March, the museum opened a second location in Cleveland, Mississippi, which is a testament to the monumental influence of the Mississippi Delta on modern American music. Opened on the campus of Delta State University, the new 28,000-square-foot museum has more than 25 exhibits that explore numerous aspects of music. In addition to providing information on the blues heritage of the Mississippi Delta, the museum galleries feature music of every genre, from rock 'n' roll to hip-hop, country, classical, Latin, R&B and jazz. The museum's greatest strength is its interactive experiences: Guests can write and record their own songs in "producing pods," with guidance from artist Keb' Mo', learn dance moves from through - out the years from Grammy winner Ne-Yo on an illuminated dance floor or play electronic instruments in the Roland Room.
