Faith Hill Lands Hometown Music Honor
Country singer Faith Hill has been honored with a special marker on the Mississippi Country Music Trail in her hometown for her outstanding contributions to entertainment.
The “This Kiss” singer was feted during a ceremony on Sunday in her native town of Star, where officials unveiled a marker in her honor on the trail.
Hill was unable to attend the event, but she took to Instagram to post a photo of her proud brother and father in front of the marker.
The plaque reads:
“From the time of her childhood here in Star, Faith Hill demonstrated a zest for music and performing that took her to Nashville while still a teenager, and to stardom from the release of her first record in 1993. She became a dominant, glamorous face of country music, a major star in the broader pop music market, with tens of millions in record sales, and multiple awards, and an effective advocate for the culture and people of Mississippi on the national stage.”
The five-time Grammy winner joins the likes of Tammy Wynette and Elvis Presley, who are all part of the state’s Country Music Trail.
