Following the opening of the Grammy Museum Mississippi on Saturday (March 5), a benefit concert dubbed “Back Where I Come From” will be held at Delta State University’s Bologna Performing Arts Center. Singer-songwriter Mac McAnally, duo Muddy Magnolias, and The Williams Brothers will headline. Also set to perform are Mississippi-born slide guitarist Sonny Landreth and friends.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to pay respect to the people who have brought us so much enjoyment through their music than to have them perform during this exciting weekend,” said Lucy Janoush, President of the Cleveland Music Foundation. “There will also be special guests in attendance who will be recognized for their lasting contributions to the music we all love.”

“As native Mississippians, we are truly honored to be a part of this grand opening,” said The Williams Brothers’ Doug Williams. “The heritage of gospel music has very deep roots here in Mississippi and many gospel greats came from this state. We would like to personally thank the Grammy Museum for recognizing the rich musical heritage of this state, and for opening only the second museum of this nature here on these grounds.

A Grammy Museum Gallery at Nashville’s Musicians Hall of Fame will celebrate its opening with a ribbon cutting on March 29, followed by a grand opening celebration on Saturday, April 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
