Music City Walk of Fame

Music City Walk of Fame Park sign, Nashville

The Music City Walk of Fame in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, is a walk of fame that honors significant contributors to Nashville's musical heritage and significant achievements in the music industry.[1]

Each honoree is commemorated with a large stainless steel and terrazzo star embedded in the sidewalk in Walk of Fame Park between the Country Music Hall of Fame, Bridgestone Arena, and Schermerhorn Symphony Center.[2][3]

The walk was established in 2006 by the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau.[1] Gibson Guitars is a founding sponsor.[4]

Since 2014, the park has been under construction and is set to be reopened on June 4th, 2015. A new plaque design will be revealed along with the induction of artists Jack White and Loretta Lynn.[5]
