On a Sunday, Sept. 8, a new historical marker honoring musician Jimmie Rodgers was dedicated in downtown Asheville. The event, part of Jimmie Rodgers Day (commemorating the singer's birthdate), included speeches and performances from local busking groups. Dallas Taylor of WNCMusic
was instrumental in getting the historical roadside marker placed. It stands on the corner of Haywood Street and Battery Park and is close to the Flat Iron Building and the Vanderbilt Hotel, two locations where Rodgers performed. Read more about Rodgers' connection to Asheville here
