Walk of Fame Park Reopening With Loretta Lynn, Jack White

Lorretta Lynn_FinalMayor Karl Dean, joined by Metro Parks and the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp., today (May 14) announced a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly-renovated Walk of Fame Park. During the event, Loretta Lynn and Jack White will be inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame. The ceremony, presented by Gibson Guitar, will be at 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 4 and is free and open to the public.

“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,” Mayor Dean said. “They represent what is best about Nashville with music that spans multiple genres and generations. They are great ambassadors for the creative community in our city, and I congratulate them on this wonderful honor.”

Both the induction ceremony and ribbon-cutting celebration will take place at Walk of Fame Park on Demonbreun Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues. In addition to the inductions of Lynn and White, the new plaque design for all of the renovated stars will be unveiled.

“Individually, Loretta Lynn and Jack White have each made an enormous impact on Nashville’s music scene,” said Ken Levitan, NCVC Board Chair and President of Vector Management. “Collectively, the impact of their collaborations has been felt exponentially and worldwide. The Walk of Fame showcases our diverse history and illustrates to fans from all over the world why we are Music City.”

Nominations for the Music City Walk of Fame are open to the public and are accepted in the categories of Artist, Musician, Songwriter, and Producer/Music Industry Executive. Application forms are reviewed by the Music City Walk of Fame anonymous selection committee.
