The highway is often called the Blues Highway because it connects Saint Paul, Minnesota; St. Louis, Missouri; Memphis, Tennessee; the Mississippi Delta, and New Orleans. The route was an important south-north connection in the days before the interstate highway system. The road later gave its name to Minnesota native Bob Dylan's album Highway 61 Revisited, and in the song of the same name, which imagines all sorts of fantastical events (including World War III) occurring alongside it. Other notable songs of the name include a blues song recorded in 1957 by Sunnyland Slim; one in 1962 by Johnny Young; and a 1981 song, 61 Highway, by bluesman James "Son" Thomas. The road is also known as the Blues Highway because it runs through the Mississippi Delta country, which was an important source of blues music.
