Highway 61 – America’s Blues Highway

The Mississippi Delta is known as the Birthplace of the Blues and has been referred to as the “cradle of American civilization.” The birth of the Blues reverberated around the world and lead to the birth of jazz, country, rhythm and blues and, of course, rock and roll.

All of these genres were inspired by the music of the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta. Your journey along U.S.

American music. Set back and relax and see where the backroads take in the Mississippi Delta.
