Forty-nine states have an official song. Now the City of Hannibal has one too.

“Huck Finn Blues” by Brad Paisley captures the essence of historic Hannibal, according to Joel Booth.

Booth’s idea to adopt the tune as Hannibal’s official song first received unanimous approval from the 2019 Bicentennial Committee.

Tuesday evening, Booth and Gail Bryant of the Hannibal Conventions and Visitor’s Bureau presented the idea to the city council. The council also gave unanimous approval.

Bryant says the proposal to make “Huck Finn Blues” the official song has already received the blessings of Brad Paisley and the other contributors.
