Mid-term Blues: Day Two - abortion on the ballot in Tennessee

The US mid-term elections are exactly three weeks away.

Our BBC North America correspondent Aleem Maqbool is on the second day of his road-trip down the so-called Blues Highway looking at some of the big election issues, and at how those concerns are reflected in the music of the day.

Today he is in Tennessee, the home of country music, where the election has become the focus of American women's rights campaigners. That is because as well as choosing legislators, voters there will be balloted on whether or not they want to change the state's rules governing abortion.
