Honored by the Jus' Blues Foundation

Fred traveled to the Mississippi Delta where the Jus' Blues Foundation honored him with the James Brown Heritage Award Saturday in Tunica. He was among soulful friends old and new during the organization's 15th annual Blues Awards Week. Attendees included Millie Jackson, Vasti Jackson, Bobby Rush, and Fred's former JB compatriots Martha High and Vickie Anderson.

In other news, Fred ranked No. 9 in AL.com's survey asking readers who the Alabama Music Hall of Fame should induct next.
