Willie For President Mural Getting Attention
The Great American Package Store is located on Hwy 198 between Gun Barrel City and Mabank. As you get close to the store, a mural will catch your eye. It features one of our favorite Texas singers with an American Flag in the background and Willie For President written in the middle.
Forget Trump, forget Hillary, if this could happen, we would have the most chill country in the world. Who doesn't love Willie Nelson?
According to CBS 19, when Zac Taylor bought the store in 2014, he had to figure out what to do with the outside walls. Zac contacted Britney Samford, owner of Stop-N-Gogh Studio in Mabank. She took inspiration from a Willie For President poster she had seen.
Over the course of two weeks, she painted the mural to greet folks driving down Hwy 198.
Willie Nelson himself has taken notice with a photo of the mural on his Facebook page that has been shared over 9,000 times.
