Clay Shirley




FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF MURFREESBORO
Murfreesboro Community President | 615.494.4200

As the Community President of First National Bank, Clay Shirley’s primary mission in serving Rutherford County is to help people and companies achieve their financial dreams. He is appreciative to Rutherford County for being so good to his family.

As a Rutherford County native, Clay appreciates the growth Murfreesboro has experienced, all the while maintaining a small-town feel. His family, wife, Beth and daughters, Ellie, 15, and Anna Clay, 11, are active members at North Boulevard Church of Christ. They are avid supporters of Middle Tennessee Christian School. The girls attend school there, and Clay serves as a Trustee. Clay has served on the Boys and Girls Clubs of Rutherford County Board of Directors for the past eight years, and held the Board Chair position in 2016. Clay loves being with First National Bank, where “we still offer true community banking.” He feels passionate about knowing his clients and their interests.

He is able to focus on building relationships with his clients so they know they can call at any time and he will take care of their needs. “It is not all about business all the time, it is about truly caring about our clients and in the process, they become friends.”

    August is the calendar month when summer begins its slow crawl towards autumn, but not before a few more hot days and thunderstorms. Enjoy the bounty of the season: vine-ripened tomatoes, ripe melon, sweet corn on the cob, and blueberries are just a few of my favorites. Luckily for us, Murfreesboro is blessed with one of the finest Farmer’s Markets in the state where we can do just that! Nothing screams summer better than a homecooked meal of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally grown and sold. Read More
  • Garage Barre + Bike

    You may have noticed the corner of Church St and Vine St on Murfreesboro’s downtown square looks a little different. What once was an empty building with a black coat of paint now features a pink-and-white striped wall (that you’ve probably seen photographed on social media.)
