I'm speakin' of the state of Mississippi which is regarded as the birthplace of America's music. You'll also find nearly 200 historical stops, and countin', on the world-renown Country Music and Blues Trails that ramble throughout the Magnolia state. Trail marker #2 on the Country Music Trail stands on the courthouse square in my hometown of Philadelphia, Mississippi. It's in the good company of Steve's On The Square, Yates Drugs, Dees Department Store, Ronnie's Steak and Grill, the Ellis Theater, not far from the train depot and visitor's center, Williams Brothers Grocery and my favorite store where I do all of my gift buying, Philadelphia Gun and Pawn. How 'bout that. All family-run businesses. I'm proud of Country Music Trail Marker #2 because it has my name on it as I said. How it should read is 'Bless journey, son of the American dream'. If you're a young musician with a dream of music in your heart, go visit my marker. Maybe you'll find some inspiration there and just know that all things are possible if you follow your heart. It will lead you to the most wonderful places. And I encourage you to keep your eyes on Him 'cause he's a wonderful guide. So how 'bout a hand for dear ole Mississippi, Country Music Trail Marker #2, and all the good people in one of the greatest places in the world. My hometown Philadelphia, Mississippi. Ladies and gentlemen, Hank Singer, here he comes. The Sultan of Goodlettsville. Lee Ann has never seen anything like it. The ole Tennessee Slicker. How 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy. Come here, Leroy. Well hello, pal." Leroy performed "Mountain Dew."

Marty continued, "And when you're singin', we holler for ya 'cause you're great." Lee Ann said, "Aww." Marty said, "You're great. You're great. This town used to be just full of authentic country singers and gettin' harder to find these days but you're carryin' it in a great way. Is that not the truth? Is that not the truth?" Lee Ann said, "Thank you. That's the highest compliment." Marty said, "Hey. Whatcha gonna sing for us?" Lee Ann said, "Umm, I've got a new song called 'Chances Are'." Marty said, "'Chances Are'.
