The Marty Stuart Show is sponsored by the good people in the great state of Mississippi. Mississippi's always been an innovative place and I'd like to recognize yet another Magnolia state innovator who's also a legendary businessman, construction magnate, friend of the arts, and all-around good man. I'm talkin' about my good friend Bill Yates. Hometown statesman from Philadelphia, Mississippi. Some of the most beautiful buildings in the world are constructed by Yates Construction, and there's one building, though in particular, in Philadelphia, Mississippi that deserves special recognition. And it's the recently constructed Yates Building Supply. Here's what makes it notable. This Yates building was the first gold-certified LEED building in the state of Mississippi. LEED. Our Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design is an nationally recognized green building certification system designed to verify all good things that are environmentally sound. In order to be recognized by LEED, one must be an efficient steward of our environment and its resources. So how about a hand for all my folks at Yate Construction and their award-winnint innovative building in Philadelphia, Mississippi. Randy. We've put it off as long as we can. Here he comes. The most popular man in country music, the Sultan of Goodlettsville, friend on Highway 31 to the dirt and blacktop alike. How 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy. What about it, Troy boy."

Leroy: "Well, I come down that ole long lonesome road this morning."

Marty: "Was it 41 or 31?"
