(2911) Country music legend and SiriusXM host T.G. Sheppard was honored by The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development with the unveiling of the "Tennessee Music Pathways" marker in his hometown of Humboldt, Tennessee. Earlier that morning, Sheppard served as Grand Marshall in the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival. After both events, at a special reception, Sheppard was also presented by the City of Humboldt's Mayor, Marvin Sikes, and President of the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival and Humboldt Alderman, Shane Lynch with a proclamation, declaring May 12, 2023, T.G. Sheppard Day in Humboldt, Tennessee and announced that Eastend Drive would be named "T.G. Sheppard Way."

"Being from Humboldt, Tennessee is something I am very proud of and always have been," shares T.G. Sheppard. "Some of my fondest memories are from growing up there. When I left home to chase this crazy dream, I always knew Humboldt was my home. It's such an honor to have the Tennessee Music Pathways marker unveiled at Downtown Green Space Park and to have Eastend Drive named T.G. Sheppard Way. It was an additional honor to be the Grand Marshall in the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival and to be a guest speaker at the Governor's Luncheon, and to top it off, Mayor Sikes proclaimed May 12, 2023, as T.G. Sheppard Day. What an incredible day that I will always remember."

"I am honored and excited to have T.G. Sheppard be our Grand Marshall for the 85th West Tennessee Strawberry Festival, receiving the much-deserved recognition from his hometown, (Humboldt, TN) for his major accomplishments in the music industry," shared Shane Lynch, 85th West Tennessee Strawberry Festival President.
