JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Soon Mississippi vehicles will be sporting a new image on the state's license plates: B.B. King's guitar.
Starting Oct. 1 pates will feature the slogan "Birthplace of America's Music" and B.B. King's signature guitar, Lucille. The words "Celebrating Mississippi's Creative Culture" surround the guitar.
The new tag replaces the Biloxi Lighthouse, which debuted in 2007 to commemorate the Gulf Coast's resilience in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Mississippi changes its tag every five years.
State officials unveiled the new tag in November 2011 during a celebration of Toyota's Corolla production at its newest auto plant in Blue Springs by then-Gov. Haley Barbour and Toyota president/CEO Akio Toyoda.
The license plate was designed by Lucy Hetrick, an artist at the Mississippi Development Authority.
