Now You're Talking with Marshall Ramsey


King Edward Antoine | Excellence in Music

This year’s Governor’s Arts Award for Excellence in Music was bestowed to none other than the legendary King Edward Antoine. A working musician for 67 years, King Edward has been a member of the Mississippi Arts Commission’s Artist Roster for 10 years, is a long-time member of the Central Mississippi Blues Society, is featured on three Mississippi Blues Trail makers and was also awarded a Peavey Award for his contribution to state’s musical legacy. He is here to tell his story, and I am honored to celebrate Mississippi’s authentic blues musician, King Edward Antoine. 

Marshall Ramsey, a nationally recognized, Emmy award winning editorial cartoonist, shares his cartoons and travels the state as Mississippi Today’s Editor-At-Large. He’s also host of a "Now You're Talking" on MPB Think Radio and "Conversations" on MPB TV, and is the author of several books. Marshall is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and a 2019 recipient of the University of Tennessee Alumni Professional Achievement Award.
