Roots rocker Webb Wilder will be inducted into the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame at an induction ceremony in Jackson on January 18th.

A native of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Wilder said of the announcement, “I am very grateful and extremely proud to be a recipient of this honor. I’ve been doing this a long time so it’s always nice when someone notices! When that someone is the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame, it’s about as special as it gets. I have always seen the state of Mississippi as the “home office” of music…the “source” so to speak, having produced so many icons who are not only my musical heroes but those of the world as well. My family goes back generations there on both sides, so really, I couldn’t be more pleased.”
