Rosedale was immortalized in Robert Johnson's 1937 recording 'Traveling Riverside Blues'. Johnson's lyrics extolled his diversions on the riverside in juke houses. Blues activity in Rosedale historically revolved around the juke joints of Bruce Street, which date to Johnson’s era and earlier. The town, one of two seats of Bolivar County, was at its most active in the 1930s, before the county’s population began to decline.
