That's Entertainment

There's a huge mural painted on the side of Barley's Taproom in the Old City that is supposed to depict East Tennessee luminaries in the music and entertainment fields. This shows just one third of the mural. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I can't seem to recognize many of these people. Except, I think that's Dolly Parton on the front left, the one who looks like she's trimmed her swimsuit with whipped cream. Uh, yeah.

I just noticed the bottom right of the photo holds an anomaly that I wish was a ghost light, but is actually the morning sun on the lens.

I used to live in Knoxville for about a yr and I loved living there!! We must be on the same wavelength because i just posted a mural that we have in Kingsland, GA lol. Yours is quite nice :)

Verrrry interesting. I'm wit you kid...I don't recognize 'em either, but you needn't be ashamed...I don't think they are very accurate depictions as I'm familiar with many country singers.

I would not have had a clue who whas who, but that looks like a barbie doll with a whipped cream skirt.
