Amy Grant and Nashville philanthropist Martha R. Ingram will receive stars on the Music City Walk of Fame during an induction ceremony on April 27, 2017 at 1 p.m. in Walk of Fame Park. They will receive the 75th and 76th stars on the Walk of Fame, and will be recognized for their significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville, and contributing to the world through song or other industry collaborations.
“Martha Ingram’s insistence that the arts are essential to a city’s success and her significant personal investments in our cultural landscape have transformed Nashville,” Nashville Mayor Megan Barry said. “Schermerhorn Symphony Center and the Tennessee Performing Arts Center are just two examples of her indelible impact on the music of Music City.”
Barry added, “Amy Grant’s beautiful vocals and her messages of hope, love and faith have entertained and inspired millions of listeners for 40 years. Amy is in the middle of so many worthy causes and events, and I’m grateful for the work she and her husband, Vince Gill, consistently do to make Nashville stronger.”
“As Nashville celebrates several historic music anniversaries this year, it is fitting that the Nashville Symphony has nominated Martha and Amy as the orchestra celebrates its 70th season and Schermerhorn Symphony Center marks its 10th anniversary,” said Beth Seigenthaler Courtney, board chair of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp and president at DVL Seigenthaler.
