Faith Hill Lands Hometown Music Honor
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.
