Clarksdale Crossroads

The Crossroads is the spot in Clarksdale, Mississippi, where, circa 1930, Robert Johnson supposedly sold his soul to the devil to play the blues like no other. Whatever Johnson did certainly worked, as songs like “Cross Road Blues,” “Love in Vain,” and “Traveling Riverside Blues” inspired—and continue to inspire—generations of blues players and rock and rollers. A giant guitar sign at the intersection of Highways 61 and 49 marks the spot of Johnson’s alleged pact.
