I'm going with Kentucky/Tennessee because Rockabilly is a derivative of Hillbilly music and why it is called Rockabilly. Rockabilly was the first rock and roll music, right? But then the hillbilly style of music and their ancestors trace back to England so England must be the birthplace of R&R.

Many of you are very close to the answer, but are you ready? Here it is........ Robert Johnson discovered Rock at "The Crossroads".

Cleveland, Ohio. WJW Radio. Alan Freed.

The music may have existed before, but the name "rock and roll" was born in Cleveland. Without that, who knows what we would call that genre of music and what this thread would be called today.
