Meridianites Will Be Honored with Blues Trail Marker

Meridian, Miss. Meridian's rhythm and blues and soul legacy will be recognized with a new marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail on Thursday.

The event will take place Thursday afternoon on the lawn of Meridian City Hall. Many musicians will be honored, including Eddie Houston, who arrived in Meridian earlier today. He talked about how the music industry has always pulled him back in, and he was excited to be honored with this marker.

"I just appreciate all the people and all the things that people have done trying to do for me. I'm happy about that, and I want to tell all my friends out there that may see this that I'm happy to be able to talk to you all again," said Houston.

The unveiling will take place at 4 p.m. Thursday.
