George IV Bridge
The N.C. Department of Transportation dedicated the bridge on Hamilton’s 79th birthday.
About 100 people gathered for the dedication ceremony, among them, 15 members of Hamilton’s family.
Hamilton, 77, died on Sept. 17, 2014, at a hospital in Nashville, Tenn., after suffering a heart attack.
“My dad always did build bridges,” said his son, Peyton Hamilton. “He was a trendsetter. He was a rockabilly (performer) before he was a country music star. He went country before it was cool. Dad was always a step ahead, but he marched to a different drummer.”
