    LeAnn was not born in Jackson…She was born in Flowood. She spent the first 7 or 8 years of her life in Pearl, Mississippi (just south of Flowood and east of Jackson), before her family moved to Texas. Incidentally, Faith Hill grew up in Star, Mississippi in the same county, only about 15 miles down the road from where LeAnn spent her childhood.

    Vikings invaded England and almost all of Europe. Vikings had deep indigenous heritage. So when you see someone who is English or Irish, Polish, Czech, etc., and they appear Asian, well they are. It’s a very small amount, but it’s there, enough to be evident in their appearance. We are all humans,, we are all products of our ancient ancestors. Remember, these DNA sites only go back 500 years.
