Rockabilly Highway Murals

Selmer, TN  38375
Commissioned by Arts in McNairy, Jackson Arts Council, Tennessee Arts Commission as well as the McNairy County Regional Alliance and Selmer Business Alliance, Selmer is now home to two beautiful murals painted by Nashville artist Brian Tull.  These public art landmarks were created in conjunction with the naming of the Rockabilly Highway.  Fifty-five miles of U.S. Highway 45 between Madison County (Jackson, TN) and McNairy County (Selmer, TN) to the Mississippi state line were officially named Rockabilly Highway on March 26, 2008.  Selmer’s Rockabilly Highway Murals are a celebration of Rockabilly Music and West Tennessee’s musical heritage.
