Loretta Lynn and Jack White will be the newest artists featured in Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame Park.
The Walk of Fame, which features artists including Alan Jackson, Keith Urban, Kings of Leon and Little Jimmy Dickens, has been closed since last year for a multi-million dollar renovation project. Their induction will mark the reopening of the park and will be a celebration of the musical talent that is housed in the city.
“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,” Nashville mayor Karl Dean said in a statement, according to Pitchfork. “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.”
The two have become one of music’s most innovative and interesting collaborative duos. White produced Lynn’s 2004 album, Van Lear Rose, and featured her as his opening act at his sold-out concert at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville this past January. The induction ceremony will be open to the public.
