Arkansas officials have broken ground on the Guitar Walk, a monument that will honor early rock ‘n’ roll legends such as Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Conway Twitty, Jerry Lee Lewis and Sonny Burgess. The Guitar Walk will be located just south of the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce Office on U.S. 67.
Rockabilly legends Billy Lee Riley, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins and Wanda Jackson also will be honored.
The plaza will be 100 feet long and 40 feet wide. It will be shaped like an Epiphone guitar, and life-sized silhouettes of the legends will ring the inside of the guitar. An audio tour will tell visitors unique stories about the singers and will be narrated by Burgess, who will tell personal stories, outlining his experiences with rock ‘n’ roll immortals.
