The 20-year-old guitarist, vocalist and songwriter was born near Clarksdale, Miss., 10 miles from the crossroads of U.S. highways 61 and 49, famous for nurturing countless blues musicians.

"I think I have an old soul, that I've been here before. I'm moving forward with one foot in the past," Ingram says on his website, christonekingfishingram.com.

The young man's family still sings in church, and his mother is Princess Pride, first cousin of the legendary country artist Charley Pride.

Rolling Stone magazine gushes about Ingram: "Is Christone 'Kingfish' Ingram the future of the blues? The blues savior is one of the most exciting young guitarists in years, with a sound that encompasses B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix & Prince."

Opening for Ingram, The Cerny Brothers are also touring to support a new album, Looking for the Good Land. Scott and Bob Cerny grew up in rural Illinois, honed their musical skills in Los Angeles, and currently live in Nashville, Tenn.

Their music is described as heartland rock, reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp.
