Indiana Lawmaker Seeking To Rename Part Of I-65 “John Mellencamp Way”
"John Cougar, John Deere, John I-65"? An Indiana lawmaker is seeking to name part of the interstate after Seymour's most famous son, John Mellencamp.
This week, a resolution was approved by the Indiana Senate transportation committee would rename a 16-mile portion of I-65 that passes through Mellencamp's hometown of Seymour in Jackson Co as "John Mellencamp Way". Rep. Terry Goodin from Austin sponsored the resolution to honor the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member.
If approved, signs would be placed along the interstate between Austin and Seymour.
