The lifesize sculpture of "Johnny Mercer" is currently in production. The sculpture of "Savannah's Favorite Son" was commissioned by The Friends of Johnny Mercer and will be placed in downtown Savannah, Georgia, upon completion.

From the mid-1930s through the mid-1950s, many of the songs Johnny Mercer wrote and performed were among the most popular hits of the time. He wrote the lyrics to more than a thousand songs, including compositions for movies and Broadway shows. He received nineteen Academy Award nominations and four Academy Awards for Best Song. Mercer was also a co-founder of Capitol Records.

The lifesize "Johnny Mercer" sculpture is modeled after a famous photograph of Mr. Mercer in New York City leaning on a fire hydrant, reading a newspaper.
