Clarksdale voted as one of the nation’s most historic small towns

For the second year in a row, Clarksdale has been named one of the nation’s most historic small towns by USA Today.

In this year’s rankings, Clarksdale landed at #7 on the list due to its rich blues culture that epitomizes the state known as “The Birthplace of America’s Music.”

From the first museum in the entire world completely dedicated to the blues to the crossroads where Robert Johnson learned how to play, there’s plenty to do in Clarksdale for music lovers all around.

Check out the interview below with Coahoma Co. Tourism Director Bubba O’Keefe and MS Delta Blues Museum Director Shelley Ritter to find out more about the history behind Clarksdale’s music scene.
