Description

In this Global Local Podcast episode, your host, Ingrid Koehler, gives you a taste of her hometown as she interviews Blake Lay, the mayor of Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.


As the ‘birthplace of Southern Gospel’ and the home of an annual festival, Mayor Lay talks about how cultural heritage and a thriving performing arts scene helps a small town support economic prosperity. In a rural area with few educational opportunities and a declining industrial base, Mayor Lay outlines how they even brought a new university campus and redesigned an old, enormous factory into an ‘industrial mall’.
