I was born on Mighty Mississippi just minutes from Beale Street in Memphis, TN. And if you know anything about Memphis, we are DEAD serious about our love for the blues and Bar-B-Q. Walking down Beale Street you can still feel the souls of past legends rhythmically residing in that two-block stretch of real estate. Timeless Blues legends like B.B. King, Memphis Minnie, Ike Turner, and Howling Wolf can still be heard blasting inside and outside of restaurants, taverns and dives.
Toda, there may be a new Blues legend on the horizon. Enter Courtney Little, "The Cougar Hunter". Brother Little has dropped a classic blues track that TRULY tells a down home story that most mid-southern men and women can relate to. For those who have never been to a blues club in the mid-south, let me paint a picture of what you're gonna see.
You're gonna get a glimpse of Baby Boomers & older Gen X'ers cutting a gyat damn rug!! You're liable to see your mama, auntie, former babysitter, old Sunday school teacher and/or local government official in that thang with one hand on the back of a chair (for balance), bent over slowly twerkin' (like she invented it) while pushing back on somebody's granddaddy. And yes, I said slowly twerkin'. To every young mane (Memphis vernacular for "man") in the mid-south (or where ever), if you're looking for a cougar who knows how to have a good time, go to a blues club. (Shout out to C.C.'s, B.B.Kings, and Classic Souls)
Brother Courtney Little tells a story that is all to familiar to many of us. "This is the story of many young men who've gotten trapped in that "Cougar Den". Nonetheless, like a strong young buck, Brother Little reinforces that in his youthful age, he was built for this. "I'm here tell you, I'm the Cougar Hunter and I'm on the prowl!"
