About Us

The Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame, whose mission is to inform, educate, and celebrate Mississippi as the birthplace of America’s music, is a statewide organization with a long history of recognizing artists connected to the music of Mississippi. The organization’s activities include inductions into the Hall of Fame, festivals, archival collections, tourist maps, blues in schools, music history curriculum in schools, publications, and web site resources.

The MMHOF is proud of its contribution to the state’s musical history and musicians. Its slogan, Mississippi birthplace of America’s music, is now at every highway entrance into the state and in all welcome centers. The slogan is also used in publications by the Department of Tourism. The hall of fame has also produced a Mississippi Music Tourism Sites map with 122 locations in the state for music lovers to visit.
