On Tuesday (Aug. 21) in downtown Nashville, four artists were honored with stars on the Music City Walk of Fame. Ray Stevens, Brenda Lee, Jeannie Seely and Ben Folds received the 81st, 82nd, 83rd and 84th stars on the Walk of Fame. The four were recognized for significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville and for contributing to the world through song (other industry collaboration).
Ricky Skaggs presented Stevens with the honor, while Trisha Yearwood and Carly Pearce were on hand to honor Seely.
“When I look at all the names on the Walk of Fame, it’s truly humbling to see mine included there,” Stevens said. “Thank you Nashville.”
“I’m honored to be a part of celebrating Jeannie Seely at the induction ceremony putting her star on the Music City Walk of Fame,” Yearwood said. “Jeannie continues to do so much for our industry, and I’m proud to call her my friend.”
“I am humbled by this recognition, and to know I have a place in history among my peers is truly astounding! Hopefully those who are following our shared dreams will be inspired and encouraged by this walkway,” Seely said. ”Last year I saw the incredible respect given to those represented here. I can only hope that I have earned, and will continue to deserve that respect.”
