Arabi welcomes T. Graham Brown back home

July 9, 2005

Arabi-- A south Georgia city gives a surprise "welcome home" to a celebrity who hasn't been back for 35 years.

The city of Arabi gave a homecoming reception for T. Graham Brown, a well-known country soul singer. The city even erected a new city limits sign in his honor. City officials, old friends and residents showed up to give warm hugs and kisses to the hometown hero.

Brown lived in Arabi from 1st through 10th grade before his parents sold their home on Bengood Avenue in 1970.

"I grew up in that house right there. I used to cut that yard and it seemed like it was so big. I used to hate to cut it, seemed like it took all day to cut it now look at it," says Brown.

Brown had hits like "I Tell it Like it Used to Be" and "Wine into Water.". He's scheduled to perform those songs and more at Saturday night's Crisp Cordele Watermelon Festival.
