Tina Turner talks about growing up at Nutbush/Flagg Grove in five-minute video
Tina Turner has been deeply involved in the renovation of Flagg Grove School. Sending her personal representative to Haywood County several times during the reconstruction process, assigning her personal decorator to oversee the construction of displays, and contributing dresses, costumes and other memorabilia for the museum, Turner is fully invested in the process.
She has also produced a video that runs slightly more than five minutes. The vignette was created especially for the Haywood County project. In it Turner reflects on her early years at Nutbush and her rise to fame as the Queen of Rock n’ Roll.
The refurbished schoolhouse now resides on the grounds of the Delta Heritage Center located on Anderson Avenue at I-40’s Exit 56 in Haywood County. Next door to Flagg Grove School is bluesman Sleepy John Estes’ home.
