Alan Jackson Gets New Mural in His Georgia Hometown

Alan Jackson Gets New Mural in His Georgia Hometown

There’s a “Small Town Southern Man” being painted on the side of the Redneck Gourmet building at 11 North Court Square in downtown Newnan, Ga.

Of course, the “man” is Newnan native and Country Music Hall of Fame member Alan Jackson.

The new 20-foot-by-40-foot mural is being painted by Tim Davis, who also painted the mural of 13 country stars on the side of Nashville’s Legends Corner in 2016.

Tim is the current Newnan artist-in-residence. The mural wall and design were chosen by Alan’s management, fan club and the local artist-in-residence program. Tim began working on the mural on Sept. 29 and expects to finish it this week.

“I feel very privileged to have been asked to paint this mural for Mr. Jackson and the city of Newnan,” says Tim to NCD. “The residents are wonderful people, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. Many people here have been following the progress and can attest that it has gone up without a hitch.”

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
