  • U.S.Highway 61 meanders south from Memphis, through DeSoto County and into the Mississippi River Delta. This was the route that all the famous blues singers and players traveled going north to the "Big Cities" looking for fame and fortune. B.B.King, Muddy Waters, "Howlin" Wolf and yes, even Oprah Winfrey, traveled this "Blues Highway" out of the cotton fields of the Delta and into the hearts of people everywhere. It was not an easy road to travel, but we are all better because they came. Spend a peaceful day at Blues Highway Gateway Visitors Center and enjoy the memories of the past.
