Charlie Monk Gets Namesake in Geneva
Charlie Monk is celebrating his sixth decade in the music business, and his achievements were recently honored when he attended his 60th high school class reunion in his Geneva, Alabama, hometown. During his visit the town presented him with his very own street, Charlie Monk Lane.
“Everybody in Geneva, Alabama, population 4,500, knew that I was the poorest kid in town but they knew that I was a hard worker and many of them gave me jobs and encouragement,” Monk says. “It took a village to raise me. I am unbelievably honored with this recognition and thank the mayor and city council for having the ceremony during a reunion of my 1957 high school graduating class.”
