Country Music mega-star Faith Hill honored in Star, MS

STAR, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Music mega-star Faith Hill was honored in Star, MS on Saturday. 

Hill received a Mississippi Country Music Trail marker and it's the 30th of a series.

The marker sits on the corner of Main and Mangum streets in Star.

The singer was not on hand for the event, but everyone was still thrilled to see the sign in her honor.

"Mississippi has such a great legacy of creativity and musical heritage. I think that it's really important that we tell the story of our living legends too. So often we talk about Jimmy Rogers and Hank Cochran and those who have their mark on Mississippi Country Music, but I think we can continue telling that story through markers like this honoring Faith Hill," said Mary Miller, who's visiting Mississippi.

The Mississippi Country Music Trail markers are funded by several groups including Visit Mississippi which helps promote tourism throughout the Magnolia State.
