Country Music

You know the Magnolia State for the blues, but visitors are often amazed to meet its multi-talented first cousin. Whether you call it hillbilly, honky-tonk or neo-traditional, Mississippi’s rich heritage of country music still runs deep here and continues to be heard and felt throughout the south.

Follow the Mississippi Country Music Trail to discover the state’s boundless contributions to country music. Not confined to a region or defined by a single style or technique, the sounds of Mississippi country music are the soundtrack of the American South.
