A large portion of the top floor is dedicated to country music star Tammy Wynette, originally from Tremont, MS where she was born and went to school. Being the closest town to where she lived, she called Red Bay, Alabama her hometown where she shopped, visited relatives and went to the movie theater. 

 

Three of her daughters have visited the museum and donated items from their mother. Georgette, the daughter of Tammy and George Jones, donated a small pair of red cowboy boots she wore as a child on stage with her parents.
