Indulged in authentic pit-cooked southern BBQ at the Crossroads in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Located at the crossroads of Highways 61 and 49, it witnessed the birth of the Delta Blues. Legend has it that Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil here, paving the way for Muddy Waters, BB King, John Lee Hooker etc.
Along the way we also paid a visit to the birthplace of Elvis himself, the town of Tupelo. The humble origins of the King of rock’n’roll are a reminder that new ideas come out of the old and the authentic.
Gospel, Country, The Blues and BBQ.
