Grammy-winning artists Faith Hill and Tim McGraw will receive stars on the Music City Walk of Fame during an induction ceremony on October 5th at 11:30 am in Walk of Fame Park, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp has announced. The honor comes one day before the couple celebrates their 20th marriage anniversary.
“Faith Hill and Tim McGraw both came to Nashville in the 1980s with big dreams and huge talent,” Mayor Megan Barry said. “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.”
“They deserve to join the many other incredible artists on the Music City Walk of Fame, and I’m looking forward to their induction.”
They will receive the 73rd and 74th stars on the Walk of Fame. 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.
The Music City Walk of Fame was created in 2006 on Nashville’s Music Mile, a roughly one-mile stretch that connects downtown to Music Row. Permanent sidewalk medallions with the names of the inductees are displayed in a star-and-guitar design.
The Music City Walk of Fame is an official project of Music City, Inc., the charitable foundation of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp, and is produced with the support of founding sponsor Gibson Brands and sponsors the City of Nashville and Metro Parks and Recreation. 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 anonymous selection committee.
