GRAND OLE OPRY member JACK GREENE was honored on SUNDAY (10/17) by the MARYVILLE, TN Mayor TOM TAYLOR, who announced that the park and amphitheatre where the FOOTHILLS FALL FESTIVAL is held every year will be renamed JACK GREENE PARK. TAYLOR made the announcement following GREENE’s set at the 2010 FOOTHILL FALLS FESTIVAL.
TAYLOR said: "What we want to do today is recognize a hometown hero's done well. I remember buying his (No. 1) hit 'There Goes My Everything' at a place many of you don't remember or never knew existed -- HITCH's -- and I played it every time some girl broke my heart. So it got a lot of play."
GREENE added: "I'm just so glad to get this. Thanks so much to all you guys."
