Wynette's home town excited she's on US stamp list

Posted: Updated:

TREMONT, Miss. (AP) - Folks in Tammy Wynette's home town are excited that she's been approved as a subject for a U.S. stamp. They want a ceremony to mark its debut in Tremont, a town of 460 near the farm where Wynette grew up.

The Itawamba County Times (http://bit.ly/WaJaBl ) reports there's already a committee to plan events for whenever the stamp is issued.

Committee chairwoman Holly Ford says a recent meeting went well.

A list of future stamps in the Music Icons series was released in January. It said Wynette had been approved as a subject, but the design process had not begun.

Approval by the Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee does not guarantee that the U.S. Postal Service will release such a stamp. And not every stamp gets a first-day-of-issue ceremony.

But Ford's optimistic.
