On Oct. 5, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw will receive the 73rd and 74th stars on Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame. The induction ceremony will take place at 11:30 a.m. in Walk of Fame Park. The event is presented by the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. and its charitable foundation, Music City, Inc.

“Faith Hill and Tim McGraw both came to Nashville in the 1980s with big dreams and huge talent,” said Nashville Mayor Megan Barry. “Driven by their determination and a lot of hard work, they eventually found great success – and each other. Tim and Faith have made a big difference in our city, not only with their music but also with their generous contributions to many important causes. They deserve to join the many other incredible artists on the Music City Walk of Fame, and I’m looking forward to their induction.”

Music City’s walk of fame was created in 2006 with permanent sidewalk medallions displaying names of the inductees in a star-and-guitar design. Inductees are recognized for their significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville and for contributing to the world through song or other industry collaboration. Nominations 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’s anonymous selection committee.

Hill has had 14 No. 1 singles, won five Grammy Awards, 12 ACM Awards and three CMA Awards. She has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and is currently preparing a new daytime lifestyle show based in Nashville.

Since his debut in 1992, McGraw has sold more than 56 million records worldwide. He has won three Grammy Awards, 16 ACM Awards and 14 CMA Awards. His acting skills were highlighted in the award-winning movies Friday Night Lights and The Blind Side. He next appears in The Shack, which hits theaters in March 2017.
