OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) — Officials in western Kentucky are taking a cue from Tennessee in their effort to make Owensboro synonymous with bluegrass music.
The Messenger-Inquirer reports Owensboro Mayor Ron Payne wants to rename Second Street so that it reflects the city's growing reputation as a hub for bluegrass music.
He says in Tennessee Nashville, which is known for country music, has Music Row and Memphis, which is known for blues, has Beale Street.
Payne says members of the public who have ideas for renaming the street can email them to mayor(at)owensboro.org.
International Bluegrass Music Museum Director Gabrielle Gray says she likes the idea — and even has come up with a suggestion: Bluegrass Boulevard.
