What makes Jackson, Mississippi the city with soul? Well, to put it simply, the people. Because the people who work, play and live here do so with passion, grace, and heart. More than that, the artists, musicians, teachers, restaurateurs, doctors, lawyers, business people, hotel owners, moms, pops, bakers, and candlestick makers who call this place home typically go out of their way to make it actually feel like home – especially for those who aren’t from around here. In Jackson, hospitality isn’t an industry, it’s a way of life. You’re always welcome. Really. It’s an invitation that’s always open.
Much of the spirit that makes Jackson unique has so far remained unsung. But through City With Soul, we’re singing that song loud and strong. We want to let the world know that Jackson is a good place to visit for a weekend, or to stay for good. To start a business, or start a band. To live your life, raise your family, even chase your dreams. We’re telling the story of Jackson’s arts, culture, downtown development, economic growth, events, attractions, happenings, and more. And, we do so proudly. After all, like just about everyone else here, we love this city – heart and soul.
“Jackson's Malaco Records defines the state of contemporary southern rhythm and blues, soul, and gospel.”
