Otis Campbell tribute artist Kenneth Junkin and I were blessed to be able make a trip from our Alabama home up to Mount Airy, NC to celebrate the 90th birthday of Russell Hiatt. Russell is the owner and proprietor of Floyd’s City Barber Shop right there on Main Street in Mount Airy and is a man who holds the spirit of Mayberry in his heart.
Russell was born January 28, 1924 and is the second oldest active barber in the United States. The occasion of his 90th birthday brought fan and friends to a snowy Mount Airy from all over the southeast. His barber shop was packed with people as they came to wish Russell happiness on a day declared Russell Hiatt Day by the city of Mount Airy and Mayor Deborah Cochran.
“Awh…big ain’t the word for it.”
