Gov. Phil Bryant’s going to Trump’s inauguration.

So’s the Tupelo High School marching band and Mississippi Gulf Coast rockers 3 Doors Down.

Bryant spokesman Clay Chandler confirmed Friday that the Republican governor, a Trump campaign surrogate, would attend the inauguration. State Sen. Joey Fillingane, R-Sumrall, and Rep. Andy Gipson, R-Braxton, will also be part of a Mississippi delegation.

Chandler says the state Republican Party is coordinating a larger group.

3 Doors Down was announced Friday as a performer at a “welcome celebration” at the Lincoln Memorial.

The Tupelo band says it reached its $110,000 fundraising goal to pay for 150 band members to travel to Washington D.C., and march in the inaugural parade.
