Marty Stuart marker to be unveiled July 25

PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) - The second marker on the Mississippi Country Music Trail will be unveiled in Philadelphia on July 25 on the block where Marty Stuart bought his first guitar.

The marker will be placed at the corner of Byrd Avenue and Main Street near the Jordan and White law office.

Tourism officials say Stuart wanted the marker be unveiled during the Neshoba County Fair and placed at that location.

Stuart bought his first guitar at Turner Hardware on Main Street and his mom worked at the Bank of Philadelphia, which was located on that corner at the time.

Stuart was born in Philadelphia on Sept. 30, 1958.
