Tammy Wynette Memorial Park Proposed In Tremont, MS

Stand by your most famous Tremont native! That’s exactly what members of this rural Itawamba County town plan to do.

Tammy Wynette’s hometown is where plans are in the works to make her the star of their show.

Earl Montgomery, a local music enthusiast, is among those who are in Tremont to celebrate a new park to be named in Tammy Wynette’s honor. Montgomery met her when she launched her career in Nashville.

“We’re all born. Were not Kennedys or Rockefellers but we’re all born into equal opportunity and it doesn’t matter where you come from. The legacy goes on from wherever the root starts at,” Montgomery said.
