The University of Tennessee's Pride of the Southland Band has been selected to march in the 56th inaugural parade.

The inauguration for President-elect Donald Trump has been set for Jan. 20 in Washington.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tennessee) tweeted his congratulations Friday morning.

The band has marched in the last 11 such parades.

The Pride of the Southland Band has represented the university and state since just after the Civil War. It is known for forming a "T" at university football games for players and coaches to run through before kickoff.
