Many will travel home today from the route 66 international festival but one man will continue along the mother road.
Jess Mcentire, a world wide recording artist began Project Route 66 in 2008 with the sole purpose to preserve and restore Route 66. Mcentire has a his troy on route 66 and promised his parents before they passed he would give something back to the mother road.
He decided to record a cd called "Man on a Mission". The CD features country artist Loretta Lynn, and will go toward placing billboards along Route 66.
"In one of the songs I made the statement if it takes a life time or the shirt off my back to get this accomplished - so when somebody's coming out of Miami they see a sign that says take a trip on Route 66 I made my parents a promise and I'll do it with or without help." Mcentire says.
