Gilley's Honky Tonk Grill opening soon in Gulfport



Honky-tonk is coming to downtown Gulfport, and we bet you'll recognize the country music legend's name attached to the project. Gilley's Honky Tonk Grill, inspired by country star Mickey Gilley, is set to open soon.
Stephen Barnette and his dad, Gary, set their sights on downtown Gulfport, Stephen's hometown.
"It just seemed like a natural fit for the concept we wanted to do," said Barnette.
That concept was a classy, casual saloon, all centered around award winning country music legend Mickey Gilley.
Gary took a chance on a past connection with Gilley, and soon he was on the phone with the man himself.

Miss Mississippi fulfills dream | Vicksburg

Miss Mississippi fulfills dream | Vicksburg: When Miss Mississippi Hannah Roberts was a little girl, she would parade around her grandmother’s living room in sash hoping to win the family’s makeshift Miss America crown.

“We would sit and watch it wearing homemade sashes made out of ribbon that said Miss America on them. After Top 10, we all drew a name and that’s who you got to be in the Top 10,” Roberts told members of Vicksburg Lions Club in her first public appearance after placing second in the national pageant.
