Memphis airport to be named after Isaac Hayes?

US Representative Steve Cohen asked the attendees of Hayes' memorial service yesterday, "What would you say if you were flying into Memphis, and they said you are about to land at Isaac Hayes International Airport," receiving a raucous response.  It makes sense too, because few musicians ever meant more to a city than Hayes did to Memphis - he was the rock that Stax was built upon. Cohen who represents the area Hayes hails from and is passionate about Memphis' number one native son, is going to have to try pretty hard to get this one done though. A similar effort to name an airport after Elvis never got rolling. [Gigwise]
