Ribs on the River is almost here and we are hoping for a great turn out. We will be changing locations due to the inability to gain a permit for the Tenn-Tom Waterway, but we are excited about the new venue. We will be at Acker Park on North Meridian Street. For those who have been before, you actually passed this park on the way to Blue Bluff. It is just up the road from the Monroe County Sheriff's Department. If you can find downtown Aberdeen, you can find us.

We will be having both steak and rib competitions through SCA so please sign up at steakcookoffs.com. The flyer supplies additional information.

#RobertJohnsonChallenge

This week's Robert Johnson Challenge is taking place at the Foxfire Ranch Ranch in Waterford, MS. It's been a pleasure convening with my young Blues Brothers discussing the importance of us being in this moment together. There will be plenty more information in the coming days about this Blues Revival.

Once again, thank for your continued support and I hope you enjoy my version of "Me and the Devil!" Its been fun participating with my Brothers Jontavious Willis and Christone "KINGFISH" Ingram!

He was one of the greats!

Congratulations to Christone "KINGFISH" Ingram! Can’t wait to have you back in Aberdeen!!

All praises to the Most High 🙌🏾, without him none of this would be possible.

Five BMAs. Wow. This is pretty amazing. These Blues Music Awards are something that I’ve thought about privately, but never figured it would happen. As a wish coming true, I am so blessed and thankful. Thank you Blues Foundation.

First off, wanna say thank you to my mom in heaven, Princess Pride. I know that you not only saw this in my future, but I also know that you see me right now. I love you. To my dad, Christopher Ingram, thank you for your love & support and for helping give me this gift of music at a young age. To my brother Trai, thank you fam... look forward to celebrating with you. Love you. To my family in Mississippi and far away, thank you for also believing in me. It means the world.

Thank you to my manager and friend, Ric Whitney... we made a plan, we did the work, and yes, we did it.

My debut record was truly a project of love. Thank you so much Mr. Buddy Guy for your support. Thank you Tom Hambridge for the patience and effort co-writing & producing my album. It was fun. Thank you so much to the Alligator Records team for all your help in getting my first project out to the world.

Also want to give a shout out to Richard “Daddy Rich” Crisman, Bill “Howl-n-Madd” Perry and my Delta Blues Museum family for helping spark my love for the Blues. Thank you to Mr. Red’s at Reds Blues Club and to Ground Zero Blues Club. To Toronzo Cannon, Marquise Knox, Jontavius Willis, Rico Mcfarland, Al Spears, Jamiah Rogers, Mike Wheeler, Andre, Luke, and the rest of my big bros in Chicago and all over, thanks to y’all for the love, advice, and support.

Finally, thank you to all of the fans who have supported me by buying & streaming my album, going to my shows and giving me mad love via social media & in person. Thank you all, I’m indeed excited and humbled. Please be safe and be good to each other. Oh yeah... and to celebrate, I’m listening to Nate Dogg tonight.

What’s going on? I hope everyone is healthy and doing well. I’m all ok, just been taking this downtime in stride. During this moment of “Hard Times,” I wanted to show a little love to my hometown.

Next Thursday, May 7 at 8pm CT (9pm ET/6pm PT) I’ll be participating in the latest installment of the World Famous Ground Zero Blues Club’s “The Quarantine Series.”

So, if you’re you’re sheltered at home & keeping things chill... please come check me out. To see my performance, go to Ground Zero Blues Club page.

The show is free to all, but if you want to tip day of show via PayPal and/or Venmo you can as a portion of all proceeds will be donated to Clarksdale’s Delta Blues Museum, the place where I first learned to play the Blues. Hope to see you all next Thursday, May 7.

Until then... ✌🏾🎸🤟🏾😷
