What do ya think? Well, I'm speakin' of the great state of Mississippi. They sponsor The Marty Stuart Show. And Mississippi is called the birthplace of America's music. The honorable home of much roots music royalty. Over the next couple of weeks, I'm gonna be tellin' ya about important destinations in central Mississippi on the Blues and Country Music Trails. Tonight, it's Meridian, which is a royal music city. It was the home of one of America's musical forefathers, Jimmie Rodgers, who is honored with a Blues Trail Marker as well as Country Music Trail Marker #1. Jimmie's songwritin' pal, Miss Elsie McWilliams has a trail marker in her honor at the courthouse. And in the near future, the granddaddy of all the American music festivals. the Jimmie Rodgers Festival, which was established back in 1953 will receive a marker all its own. Two more Blues Trail Markers honoring a host of Mississippi's blues and jazz musicians will soon be unveiled, makin' Meridian, Mississippi the most awarded city on the Blues and Country Music Trail. Marker. A great honor indeed. How 'bout a hand for our friends in Meridian. Apostle....." Paul said, "Yes." Marty continued, "Doug, Connie. Speakin' of honors. It is indeed an honor to introduce the Sultan of Goodlettsville, the ole Tennessee Slicker, the most popular man in country music, how 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy, everybody. Come here, Leroy. Hey, Hey." Leroy sang a parody of "Ghost Riders In The Sky" called "Ghost Chickens In The Sky." Marty cracked up hysterically each time Leroy did his rooster crow.
