Jack White + Loretta Lynn to Join Nashville’s Walk of Fame
Today (May 14), Nashville Mayor Karl Dean announced that Loretta Lynn and Jack White will be inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame. Not only will they be joining the coveted Walk, but they will also be celebrating the opening of the newly-renovated Walk of Fame Park. The ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for 1PM CT on June 4 and will be free and open to the public.
"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," the mayor said in a statement. "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."
Adding to those sentiments, Ken Levitan, chairman of the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp., said, "Individually, Loretta Lynn and Jack White have each made an enormous impact on Nashville's music scene. Collectively, the impact of their collaborations has been felt exponentially and worldwide. The Walk of Fame showcases our diverse history and illustrates to fans from all over the world why we are Music City."
The Walk of Fame was created in 2006 and is located on Music Mile, which connects downtown Nashville to the famed Music Row. You can find more information on the Walk of Fame here.
