Bobby Rush...2017 GRAMMY winning blues legend, Blues Hall of Famer, 12x
Blues Music Award winner, B.B. King Entertainer of the Year, and Rolling
Stone magazine named King of the Chitlin’ Circuit

Naming your album after a song entitled “Porcupine Meat” may seem a little unusual
unless you’re Bobby Rush, who earned his first gold record in 1971 with a hit
entitled “Chicken Heads.” He elaborates on his recent composition: “If a lady won’t
treat me right, but she doesn’t want anyone else to have me, that is hard to digest.”
Hence the lyric, “too fat to eat, too lean to throw away.” Porcupine Meat is Rush’s
debut release for Rounder Records, and one of the best recordings of his astonishing
60-plus year career. Released in late 2016 the album went on to garner a Grammy
Award for Best Traditional Blues Album after a debut at #1 on the Living Blues radio
chart and on Billboard Blues.
