T.G. Sheppard has been honored by The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development with the unveiling of a “Tennessee Music Pathways” marker in his hometown of Humboldt, Tennessee.

On the day of the unveiling of the marker, Sheppard served as Grand Marshall in the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival. After both events, the country hitmaker and SiriusXM host 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 as T.G. Sheppard Day in Humboldt, Tennessee and announcing 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 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 for his major accomplishments in the music industry,” says Lynch, 85th West Tennessee Strawberry Festival President.

Sheppard continues to bring some of the hottest names in country as his special guests on The T.G. Sheppard Show on SiriusXM’s Prime Country. Airing weekly, he curates some of the biggest hits from the ’80s and ’90s and shares behind-the-scenes stories with the most recognizable names in country from that era.
