The Father of Country Music, Jimmie Rodgers, was born right here in Mississippi, and Citizens National Bank is proud to serve as The Power of LocalSM Sponsor for the annual Jimmie Rodgers Music Festival, which is held each year in Meridian. So, if you attend the festival, which is held during the first weekend of May, you are likely to see a sea of blue – blue T-shirts that is. That's because our Bank employees turn out in full force to volunteer at this festival each year. Leading up to the festival, the Bank is also pleased promote the festival statewide through billboard and marquee sign messages, as well as radio commercials and a variety of other types of marketing support. Save the dates of May 5–6, 2017, and plan to be in Meridian for one of the most outstanding music festivals in our area.
And remember that throughout the year, you can also visit the Jimmie Rodgers Museum in Meridian, which has been designated by TripAdvisor company FlipKey as one of the Top Museums Worth Traveling For in our 50 states.
