Faith Hill

Country music star Faith Hill is calling on lawmakers in her home state of Mississippi to change the state’s flag, which currently features the Confederate emblem.

Faith Hill Wants Mississippi Flag Changed

Faith Hill, best known for her 90’s hit single “This Kiss” and longstanding marriage to country music icon Tim McGraw, put out a personal appeal to lawmakers in her home state on Thursday.

“To the Mississippi legislature: It’s time to change the state flag. I am a proud MS girl and I love my home state. When I think of Mississippi, I think of my mom and dad, the church I grew up in, high school football, and where I fell in love with music,” Hill tweeted. 

“Now, it is time for the world to meet the Mississippi of today and not the Mississippi of 1894 (when the MS legislature voted on the current flag),” the 52 year-old singer added.

Faith Urges Missippi Legislature To Vote On A New Flag

“I urge the Mississippi legislature to vote tomorrow Friday, June 26 on ONE NEW FLAG, one that represents ALL of the citizens of Mississippi,” Hill added in a third tweet. 

Fox News reported that Mississippi is the last state to have the Confederate symbol on its flag. State lawmakers have drafted a resolution to have the flag changed, but it’s unclear if it will actually pass at this time.

Here Comes The Backlash

Hill has been hit with backlash ever since she shared this tweet yesterday, as many country music fans seem to feel that she is selling out.

There are a few people who side with Hill on the matter though.

Faith Hill might regret speaking out about this and taking the side of the social justice-obsessed left since the response has been largely negative.
