The Story of Robert Johnson at "The Crossroads"

Here's a little video about the infamous Robert Johnson and his crossroads fame, singing about a the Delta hot tamale.

Legend has it that Johnson sold his soul to the devil at "The Crossroads" in order to play the Blues like no other.

"The Crossroads" is reported to be at Hwy 61 and Hwy 49 just a few miles north of Shacksdale. And Robert Johnson's music lives on here in Shackdale just south of Clarksdale.

When you come to the crossroads, listen the blues, hear the stories, and eat the food, it's guaranteed to change your life. Don't worry, you won't need to sell your soul to the devil for it either.
