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.”
