As birthplace of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, and B.B. King, it is no wonder that Mississippi is known as home of the blues. However, the state where music remains a proud tradition, has also produced breakout stars in other genres, including Elvis Presley, Faith Hill, and Jimmy Buffett.
