Sixteen miles of I-65 in Southern Indiana could soon get a new name: John Mellencamp Way. State lawmakers gave initial approval Wednesday to a resolution urging state highway officials to rename a portion of I-65 between Austin and Seymour after the legendary rocker.
It contains no requirement along the way for an interstate running through a front yard, as Mellencamp so famously sang about in the song “Pink Houses.”
Rep. Terry Goodin, D-Austin, said he sponsored the proposal to honor Mellencamp, who grew up in Seymour and found inspiration there for many of his songs, including “Jack and Diane” and “Small Town.”
“John Mellencamp’s music resonates with so many people, regardless of culture or background,” Goodin said. “His loyalty to the state of Indiana is undeniable. Not only is his band predominantly made up of Hoosier musicians, but his music reflects the heart and soul of this state.”
In addition to his music, Mellencamp helped organize the first Farm Aid concert to raise money and awareness to help family farmers stay on their land. He also has supported Indiana University and lives in Bloomington.
“His body of work and his actions on behalf of mankind has brought positive attention to Indiana,” Goodin said. “I believe that naming a portion of the highway in his honor is a fitting tribute for his many successes.”
The newly named portion of interstate would stretch from Exit 34 to Exit 50.
The House Roads and Transportation Committee approved the resolution 13-0. It now moves to the full House.
If approved, Mellencamp should take the inaugural spin on his namesake highway in a “Rumble Seat.”
