CLARKSDALE, MS – For Season 12 ‘American Idol’ will hop on a bus and take their zaniness to Small Town America. The lucky cities are Idaho Falls, ID; Billings, MT; Casper, WY; Rock Rapids, IA; Iowa City, IA; Bowling Green, KY; Joplin, MO; Dodge City, KA; Grand Junction, CO AND C-L-A-R-K-S-D-A-L-E, Mississippi, Heart of the Mississippi Delta.

Randy Jackson graced Clarksdale with his fine presence in April 2010 while doing some business in the vicinity with Morgan Freeman. He dined at Madidi Restaurant (now closed  😥 ) during that visit and lucky for me, I was managing the iconic establishment at the time. Randy was warm, welcoming and more than I expected. He didn’t have any of that stuff in his neck, ya know. He was simply kind and genuine.

I can’t help but think ole Randy put in a good word for us back here in the Mississippi Delta. Thanks, Randy! Wanna stay at the DELTA BOHEMIAN™ GUEST HOUSE or the CLARK HOUSE during your stay? hint hint

Here’s to all our musician friends who will have a rare opportunity to garner that spotlight for a bit. Daddy Rich, get ready!
