Nutbush was made famous in the 1973 Ike and Tina Turner hit, “Nutbush City Limits.” It was the last hit single produced by the duo. Welcome to the heart of a true cotton community. Notice the still-operating cotton gin and visit the Nutbush Country Store with a sign proudly declaring it the "Birthplace of Tina Turner." When settlers first arrived here, they found an abundance of hazelnut trees that had to be cleared so homes could be erected. This reminded them of a village in North Carolina called Nutbush, so they gave their settlement the same name.
