The trail is a tourism effort to promote the world-renowned music scene in the state. If a grant can be found, featured on the mural would be Dottie West, Charles Faulkner Bryan, Uncle Dave Macon, and Hal Durham.
The Paul Holder Real Estate building is under consideration for a mural dedicated to honoring Warren County’s musical past in order to connect this community to a driving tour called Tennessee Music Pathways, a statewide tourism initiative. “There’s an art grant available, but there is a timeline attached to it,” said McMinnville Mayor Jimmy Haley, who requested the city’s Finance Committee to designate funds for the reimbursable grant. “We were looking for a nonprofit to apply for this.”
