In season 1, we learned about a man from Germany who moved to Alabama to paint portraits. We also learned about a woman who painted on spider webs. In this episode of the Alabama Short Stories podcast, we learn about a man who painted on an entirely different canvas, the roofs of barns. If you have ever seen a barn roof promoting Rock City, then Byers and his crew painted it. He was born in Alabama and lived in Georgia and Tennessee. He would come home to open Sequoyah Caverns, using the marketing skills he learned working with Rock City. This is his story.
