The new Johnny Paycheck Signs will be going up soon in Greenfield

New Johnny Paycheck signs will be going up soon in Greenfield. Local artist Tammy Wells, who designed the previous signs, also was responsible for the artwork and design of the new signs that are highlighted with a picture of Paycheck.

Jones thanks Wilkin and the Greenfield Village Council, who donated the old signs, which were in dire need of replacement and were auctioned off at last year's Daryle Unger Memorial benefit to raise money for the annual fishing derby and scholarship fund.

Paycheck was born Donald Eugene Lytle on May 31, 1938 and passed away on Feb. 19, 2003.

He was an American country music singer and Grand Ole Opry member notable for recording the David Allan Coe song "Take This Job and Shove It." He achieved his greatest success in the 1970s as a force in country music's "outlaw movement" popularized by artists Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver and Merle Haggard.
