Born Louis Marshall Jones in 1913, in Niagara, the Country Music Hall of Famer is also dubbed the grandfather of Bluegrass Country Music.
"It's claw hammer bango. That's a traditional form of banjor that Grandpa used rather than the Bluegrass Pickinig with your fingers. A rhythm with hands instead of your fingers."
Jones' star rose even more in 1969 when he joined the cast of Hee-Haw.
But as celebrated and notable as Grandpa Jones became in Nashville, there are no monuments honoring the legend in his home county.
"Granda Jones is more well known in Nashville than where he was born".
And some locals believe that should change.
"Grandpa getting a historical marker here in Henderson County is the first step in my opinion of what should be done for Grandpa."
Wayne is circulating a petition to have a marker in Jones' name placed somewhere in Henderson County.
"Some people don't know who he is especially the younger generation."
Wayne says before Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks, George Staight, Ricky Scaggs and George Jones, there was Grandpa Jones.
"This is a revival of his legacy and life and I see it as nothing positive".
