Muddy had a distinctive voice and he wrote a large portion of "the blues" at the time (as Mckinley Morganfield) i was going to say that Buddy Guy maybe comes the closest in sound. I'll add to the list Keb Mo, too.

That's a tall order, like hearing a good blues band that was NOT influenced by Muddy Waters. About the only guides for you might be to stick with electric guitar blues, then the "Chicago" style, if you can get your head around that... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muddy_Waters ...
In no particular order, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton when he feels like it, Luther Allison, Johnny Winter, and 35 other acts, including these guys:

You like Muddy Waters, eh? I would say check out some John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang (he's more contemporary), Bobby "Blue" Bland, Sonny Boy Williamson, maybe some Big Mama Thornton or Koko Taylor.
There's plenty of blues out there.
