Tennessee may honor Isaac Hayes

NASHVILLE (AP) — Legendary late soul musician Isaac Hayes may get a commemorative stretch of highway in his home state of Tennessee.
A measure to designate a section of Interstate 40 the “Isaac Hayes Memorial Highway” passed the state Senate unanimously Thursday. The House approved it without opposition in April.
The commemorative stretch would be near Memphis, where Hayes had a home until he died of a stroke in 2008 at the age of 65.
He was raised in Tipton County, north of Memphis.
The bill now goes to Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, who is not expected to oppose it.
