The best source for everything Deep South USA


The Mississippi Blues Trail

The Mississippi Blues Trail tells stories throughout the state using words and images of bluesmen and women, and how the places where they lived and the times in which they existed – and continue to exist – influenced their music. The markers run from city streets to cotton fields, train depots to cemeteries, and clubs to churches. With so much to share and it's all just down the Mississippi Blues Trail.

To view a current list of all the markers and the region they are featured click here. You can also follow the Mississippi Blues Trail on Facebook to keep up to date with all the latest news.

Mississippi Country Music Trail

Country music is a direct descendent of the Blues – a music form that was born in Mississippi. To commemorate this important part of Mississippi's rich heritage, the Mississippi Country Music Trail was created.

Explore the high notes in the history of country music with the likes of Jimmie Rodgers (the "Father of Country Music" himself), Charley Pride, Conway Twitty, Jerry Clower, Faith Hill, Paul Overstreet and a great many others.
