I'm just impressed that no one seems to want to recognize that this fine man was really from Mississippi by birth and choice for most of his life. If he has a great accent, it must be from Virginia. If he's talented, he must be from Tennessee. I'm not being critical of you. I'm just getting irritated that no one is recognizing that Mississippi can produce great folks, just like other States. He's a product of MISSISSIPPI, for goodness sakes.
I wasn't the one who first posted it but I don't know why you're misinterpreting things.
Apparently I had it backwards then, that he was born in Mississippi and perhaps lived in Tennessee? Well so what! I didn't believe he was born in Virginia, but I said I'd check. Ye gads and liddle fishees!
