Excellent list DED46. Sounds like you're a lover true acoustic blues. Please add for your consideration :"Key to the Highway" by Brownie Mc Ghee & Sonny Terry, "When You Got a Good Friend" by Johnny Winter, and anything by Lightnin' Hopkins.

Kenny Chesney is great country music artist.

But not a blues singer.

Amen, Bessie was true great. She was the original strong women of her era. She was a business person, an artist, and a musical pioneer.

I was going to list one song. But, it might not be considered to be a real blues song. So as an intro to it, I want to post this one first:

Mean Mary - I've Been Down (but not that low)

 

Now, you might appreciate why 

I Guess That's Why I Call it The Blues, better:

Mean Mary - Big Red Barn

While "Blue Christmas" is truly one of Elvis' best sides,  especially from his early days, with James on guitar and the Jordinaires on back up vocals, it's not a blues tune. An absolutely great rock tune though!! And certainly a Christmas classic.
