Tammy Wynette memorial planned in Itawamba County

TREMONT — The proceeds from a concert by George Jones will be used for the construction of a memorial in honor of country music star and Itawamba County native Tammy Wynette.

Mayor Glyn Robinson says the “Tammy Wynette Birthplace Concert” will be held Dec. 3 at Itawamba Community College Davis Event Center in Fulton.

Jones is Wynette’s ex-husband.

Officials are hoping to create a “tourable” replica of Wynette’s childhood home. It would become part of a memorial that includes a Mississippi Country Music Trail marker recently dedicated in a city park.

Wynette was born on a farm near Tremont, where she attended school. She produced20 No. 1 records including “Stand By Your Man,” ”D-I-V-O-R-C-E” and “You and Me.”
