Country Music Hall Of Famer Jimmy Dean Honored With Museum
(AP) - Before he became known as a sausage king, Jimmy Dean had a career in music. And next month, ground will be broken in Texas to honor that part of Dean's legacy.
Wayland Baptist University and the Museum of the Llano Estacado will start work on an addition of a museum dedicated to Dean's career as a country star. The museum wing will be Plainview, Texas - Dean's hometown.
The museum will cost about $5 million to complete. It will house memorabilia from Dean's personal collection - and feature a bronze statue of the performer.
