Country queen Loretta Lynn and rock provocateur Jack White have been announced as the newest inductees into the revamped Music City Walk of Fame, Nashville’s version of the famous Hollywood landmark.
Decorative plaques will be embedded in the sidewalk stretching between the vibrant tourist areas downtown and country’s traditional headquarters on Music Row, about a mile away. According to Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, Lynn and White will attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the newly improved Walk of Fame Park, a public space used for festivals and concerts across the street from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The park previously held all of the Walk of Fame markers, but was running out of room.
“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the reopening of Walk of Fame Park than with the induction of Loretta Lynn and Jack White — two very diverse artists,” said Dean.
